Richmond's AFLW side has rounded out its pre-season on a high note, recording a commanding 28-point win over West Coast in a practice match on Sunday afternoon at the Swinburne Centre.
The Tigers wasted no time from the first bounce, securing the first three majors before eventually running away to a 7.9 (51) to 3.5 (23) victory.
Richmond's forwards worked together seamlessly from the get-go, as Tayla Stahl shone with three goals and Courtney Wakefield and Katie Brennan slotted one each.
Christina Bernardi booted two and was sharp on return in her first proper outing since undergoing foot surgery at the conclusion of the 2019 AFLW season.
Having blown out the cobwebs in a match simulation session against the Western Bulldogs the week prior, Richmond looked slick and in control as it held West Coast goalless for the first term.
But the visitors fought back in the second quarter to reduce the Tigers' margin to just one point, before Bernardi answered back just before the main break.
The Tigers' clean ball movement created plenty of scoring opportunities in the third term, before some final-quarter brilliance from Stahl and Brennan propelled Richmond home.
Lauren Tesoriero provided plenty of midfield grunt in what was an impressive return from injury, while the Tigers' defensive unit, led by Phoebe Monahan, was superb.
Midfielder Ella Wood was explosive, while fellow cub Laura McClelland was a standout, thriving at the contest and showcasing excellent aerial ability.
McClelland said the win reflected a true team performance in what was a valuable opportunity for the Tigers to test themselves against another expansion side.
"We're getting closer (as a team) every week and we (try) each week to improve and do at least one thing better, and I feel we did a lot better this week," she said.
The 18-year-old key position player, who was taken by Richmond with its second selection at the 2019 NAB AFLW Draft (No. 25 overall), looked right at home on the AFLW stage.
"The adjustment to the next level is a higher step but I'm loving it and I know the other draftees are loving it here at Richmond too," she said.
Having now completed their final pre-season hit-out, the Tigers turn their attention to the season opener against Carlton at Ikon Park on Friday, February 7.
