Richmond excitement machine Shai Bolton made a seamless return to the playing field in yesterday’s match against Adelaide at Giants Stadium after missing two games with a broken wrist.

Bolton played a pivotal role in the Tigers’ 28-point win with 23 disposals, five inside-50s, one goal, nine score involvements, eight marks, four tackles and 497 metres gained.

The young dual premiership Tiger again showed why he is such an important member of the Yellow and Black line-up with his top-class display.
