RICHMOND has delisted Matt McDonough and Matt Arnot in the aftermath of its finals exit, taking the number of post-season departures to six.

McDonough managed just two games this season, taking his career tally to 10 across three seasons after being recruited with pick No.42 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft. 

• All of 2015's retirements and delistings

A versatile utility who had aimed to settle in the midfield this season, he occasionally pressed for senior selection but was overtaken by younger talent this year.

Arnot, who played nine games in four years, was delisted at the end of the 2014 season before being re-drafted as a rookie.

He only managed one senior game in 2015, however, despite being a strong midfield contributor for the Tigers in the VFL.

Chris Newman, Nathan Foley, Ricky Petterd and Chris Knights had all earlier announced their retirements.
