Naish (32 disposals, eight marks, two goals), Ross (29 disposals, 15 marks, nine rebound-50s) and Collier-Dawkins (27 disposals, two goals) all stood out at VFL level last weekend. 

"He's in great form," Richmond VFL playing coach Steve Morris said of Naish, who will return for his fifth senior appearance of the season.

"Once again he was dominant...he worked hard all day and used the ball well."

Out of last week's side is Dion Prestia, Noah Balta, Kane Lambert and Nathan Broad, all through injury, and omitted pair Rhyan Mansell and Samson Ryan.
