Richmond has named its line-up for Sunday night’s trip to Optus Stadium to face West Coast.

The Tigers will regain triple premiership midfielder Kane Lambert for the Perth clash, after he missed the past six games with a calf injury.

Speaking to the media on Friday morning, senior coach Damien Hardwick said Lambert would be a welcome return.

"It's a great acquisition that we can bring in a quality player such as Kane," Hardwick said.

"He's been doing a power of work off the track to get his body right and a lot of skill work as well."

"So, we're really pleased to welcome him back."

Out of the side that defeated Essendon by 39-points at Optus Stadium last Saturday night is Dion Prestia, who was subbed out of the win due to a hamstring complaint, and Riley Collier-Dawkins, who has been omitted. 

Prestia was named in Thursday night's squad of 26 ahead of training on Friday morning, but Hardwick said the Tigers would take a conservative approach with the 28-year-old based on how he pulled up.

Replacing Prestia in Richmond's squad is Rhyan Mansell, who has been named as an emergency alongside Will Martyn, Hugo Ralphsmith and yet-to-debut Ben Miller.

Daniel Rioli, who was activated as the Tigers' medical substitute in place of Prestia last weekend, has been named in the starting 22. 

Richmond will confirm which player steps into the 23 to serve as the medical substitute 60 minutes before the opening bounce.

Hardwick said facing the Eagles on their home deck was always a "daunting task", but one the Tigers were looking forward to.

"It's a hostile environment, a home crowd does pump up the side," Hardwick said.

"But we're looking forward to playing in front of a big crowd, and we're very lucky Tiger fans will get there rain, hail or shine, so we're going to have a pretty good contingent of fans there as well."

"We're going over to a great environment, great stadium, against one of the very best sides in the competition to test ourselves against."

Sunday night's game will be broadcast live on Channel 7 from 7.00pm AEST.
