Richmond’s VFL captain Jaryd Cachia returns to the line-up this week, for Sunday’s Round 5 clash with Collingwood at the ME Bank Centre.
Cachia has missed the last two games through suspension, and joins a midfield group which includes in-form ruckman Shaun Hampson, and Reece Conca, who is playing his second game back from a hamstring injury.
AFL rookie Matt Thomas, who was back to his best early in last week’s win over North Ballarat, has recovered from a leg knock to take his place in the team.
All seven players named in the AFL extended squad have been named in the VFL squad, before teams are finalised at 5pm today (Friday).
The match will be broadcast live on Channel 7, with the match starting at 11.42am.
