Richmond pair Kamdyn McIntosh and Jack Ross will be rested from Sunday's VFL Grand Final against Williamstown, as the club monitors the availability of Jack Graham and Nathan Broad for next Saturday’s AFL Grand Final.
Graham dislocated his right shoulder in Friday night’s preliminary final win over Geelong, while Broad suffered concussion.
McIntosh and Ross will be replaced by VFL-listed Tigers Daniel Coffield and Jacob Ballard.
Both Coffield and Ballard are members of Richmond’s 2019 VFL leadership group.
Reliable intercept defender, Coffield, who was recently named in the VFL Team of the Year, was an unlucky omission from last week’s preliminary final.
Ballard, a bullocking on-baller and former Fremantle rookie, skippered the VFL Tigers on multiple occasions this season.
Those unable to make it to the clash can watch it live on Channel 7 from 1.30pm.
