Star Richmond AFLW players Ellie McKenzie, Katie Brennan and Monique Conti have underlined their commitment to the Club by signing on for the next two seasons in Yellow and Black.
The All-Australian pair and boom youngster McKenzie formed the top-three in the Tigers’ best and fairest this year, and have bolstered the group by committing for the maximum contract terms under current AFLW rules.
Rapidly improving talls Bec Miller and Gabby Seymour have also signed with the Club until the end of the 2023 season, as has dynamic winger Tessa Lavey.
After impressing in an expanded role through the midfield this season, former No. 15 draft pick Maddy Brancatisano is also on board for the longer term.
Richmond Head of Women's Football Kate Sheahan said it was exciting to have all seven players a part of the Club's future.
"We're thrilled to have this group of girls re-commit to the Club for another two years," she said.
"All seven are strong contributors to our culture here at Richmond and it's great to see them invested in our program.
"We're looking forward to watching them develop as players and seeing what they can help us achieve."

Brennan said she was stoked to be on board for another two years.
"We had a great year last year and we started to gain a lot of momentum, so to have that commitment is really exciting," she said.
"We're building something really special here, so to have that commitment from the girls means a lot to the group and will hold us in good stead going forward."
Richmond's 2021 AFLW Sign and Trade Period recruits, Jess Hosking, Poppy Kelly and Maddie Shevlin, also have each penned two-year deals.
