Richmond fans will get an extra footy fix this Sunday when the VFL Tigers face the Northern Blues in the opening match of a double header at the MCG.
The two sides will meet at 11.50am, ahead of Richmond’s Round 21 match against Carlton at 3.20pm.
Tall forward Callum Moore will make his long-awaited return after 13 weeks on the sidelines with an ankle injury.
The ladder-leading Tigers will also be buoyed by the return of livewire forward Daniel Butler, who comes back into Richmond VFL’s line-up after a week in the senior side.
Tom Silvestro, Charlie Thompson and Lachlan Street have also been named in the extended squad of 30.
All patrons attending the VFL curtain raiser will require a valid AFL event ticket or valid game day membership to gain entry.
The MCG Gates 1, 3 and 6 will open at 11.30am, as well as MCC and AFL reserve sections.
The match will be broadcast live on Channel 7 from 11.30am.
