Richmond coach Damien Hardwick has provided an insight into the Tigers’ pre-season training and planning in a special Facebook Q & A with  Here’s a snapshot of Hardwick’s thoughts on a variety of Yellow and Black topics . . . 

Playing three talls in the forward line
“We'd like to think so, but the situation is we've got to pick the forward line that kicks the most goals. We'll have a look all options in the NAB Challenge.”

Ricky Petterd’s role
“Ricky's had a great pre-season, the strength of Ricky is his flexibility so he has to be prepared to play mid, back and forward.”

The small forward role
“We’d like to think we've recruited well over the last couple of years to fulfil this role. Those players will get an opportunity to cement a place from round one in the NAB Challenge.” 

Reece McKenzie/Liam McBean
“Both are going well this pre-season and both have shown signs of improvement, be great to see how both perform in NAB Challenge if selected.”

Dustin Martin and Brett Deledio
“We'd like to see Dusty more through the midfield this year. Brett we thought had a great second half of the year playing more forward so will be similar this year.”

Matt McDonough
“He will be playing forward and has had a really good pre-season thus far. As for the best 22, that's in Matt's court.” 

Connor Menadue
“Not only is Connor super quick, he also looks a quality player. He's a real student of the game, and we've been really impressed with his work rate.” 

Chris Knights
“Chris is having as good a pre-season as he's had. We're starting to see the return of Chris to his best form. Look forward to seeing him play early NAB Challenge.”
