Richmond VFL has locked in its line-up for Saturday’s clash with Williamstown at the Swinburne Centre.
The Tigers will be back on their home deck to take on the Seagulls from 2:05pm, looking to make it two wins in a row after a thrilling two-point victory over North Melbourne last weekend.
Coming into the side are Josh Gibcus and Jake Aarts, who have both been omitted at AFL level, Sydney Stack who will be returning from his fractured cheekbone injury, Samson Ryan, and VFL-listed Tiger Jess McGrath.
As the pointy end of the season approaches, Richmond VFL coach Steve Morris said it would be an important contest.
“They’ll all be important (games) at this stage of the season, we don’t hide away from the fact that we want to be there in the finals,” Morris said.
“It’s a big game against Williamstown, I think we’ve learned a few lessons over the last few weeks.
“When we play a quick, exciting brand of footy, it’s really good to watch. So, that’s certainly something I’m looking to see this weekend, and to bring that fight to the game as well.”
