Richmond wingman Kamdyn McIntosh has been named in the VFL Tigers’ side for their curtain raiser clash with Collingwood at Olympic Park Oval this afternoon.
The VFL Tigers, who are back on top of the ladder following their Round 16 win, will take on the Pies at 4.30pm ahead of tonight’s 7.50pm match at the MCG.
After playing at neither level last week, McIntosh will play his first VFL match since Round 15, 2018.
The side is also set to be strengthened in the ruck by Toby Nankervis for the second week straight, as he continues to clock up game time before making his senior return.
The Tigers will regain the services of leadership group members Hugh Beasley and Jacob Ballard, while Chad Harris will also return to the line-up.
Bendigo Pioneers graduate Bailey Henderson will make his Yellow and Black debut.
Out of the side that defeated Box Hill by 14 points are Josh Caddy and Lewis Diggins.
Premiership forward Jacob Townsend will play his 50th game for Richmond VFL.
Tiger fans who are unable to attend can tune into a live audio stream from Casey Radio via the VFL app, or view a 30-minute delayed video telecast of the match on Richmond Media's YouTube channel.
