Three players will step out in a senior AFL game for the first time for Richmond in Round 1.

Richmond Tigers Training Session

Richmond
FB: Shane Edwards, Kelvin Moore, Chris Newman
HB: Mitch Farmer, Luke McGuane, Will Thursfield
C: Dustin Martin, Brett Deledio, Ben Nason
HF: Tom Hislop, Jack Riewoldt, Richard Tambling
FF: Relton Roberts, Mitch Morton, Robin Nahas
Fol: Troy Simmonds, Daniel Jackson, Trent Cotchin
Int: Tyrone Vickery, Ben Cousins, Daniel Connors, Adam Thomson
Emg:: Dean Polo, Graham Polak, Matt White

Differences from round 1 projection:
In: Cousins, Roberts, Thomson, Hislop
Out: Polak, Shane Tuck, Troy Taylor, Alex Rance

How far Shane Tuck has fallen. Not even an emergency. I did get Taylor wrong for Roberts in guessing the three debutantes. I have been down on Polak all preseason, so it makes sense to me that Hardwick would go for Roberts instead of Polak in that forward line. The fact that Farmer has been named in the 18 ahead of Connors suggests that Connors’ job security is a little lower.
