Richmond has regained the services of two-time premiership Tiger Josh Caddy and young gun Jack Ross for Thursday night’s match against Hawthorn at the MCG, with midfielder Dustin Martin to miss the clash.
After experiencing soreness following last week’s match, Martin has minor bruising to the ribs, and will not play. The Club will assess his availability for Round 4 next week.
Also out of the side that drew with Collingwood in Round 2 is Liam Baker, who will miss the match due to personal reasons
Versatile Caddy comes back into the Tigers' line-up after he missed last week due to calf soreness.
Tough teenager Ross returns for his first game since Round 22, 2019. The 19-year-old has recently been trialled at half-back, a role he played well in last week's scratch match against Collingwood.
Richmond’s four emergencies for the Hawks clash are Noah Balta, Toby Nankervis, Oleg Markov and Kamdyn McIntosh.
