The VFLW Tigers will look to consolidate their spot inside the top six this Saturday when they host the Western Bulldogs at the Swinburne Centre at 12.30pm.
The two sides will meet for the second time this season, after the Bulldogs ran away with a slender six-point win over the Tigers in Round 9.
The Tigers currently sit third on the ladder while the Bulldogs are placed fourth. It’s a crucial clash for Richmond, who will then face the second-placed Southern Saints the following week in the final round.
Steadfast defender Lisa Davie will come back into the Tigers' line-up, as well as Madeline Edwards, who has been included for her fourth game of the year.
Vic Country representative Maddy Baldwin will play her debut game in the Yellow and Black as Richmond’s 23rd player.
Out of the side that defeated Carlton by 48 points are Akec Makur Chuot, Teagan Brett and Laura Bailey.
The Bulldogs match will also mark Jenna Colwell’s 50th VFL game.
