RICHMOND has re-signed six players, including versatile defender Jake Batchelor and Ricky Petterd.
Batchelor has inked a deal that will keep him at Punt Rd until at least the end of 2016, while Matt Dea, Matt McDonough, Todd Elton and Petterd have also put pen to paper.
Former Port Adelaide midfielder Matt Thomas has re-signed as a rookie-listed player for a further year as well.
Batchelor, 22, was a key cog in the Tigers' incredible run to the finals this season, only breaking into the senior team in Round 13 and playing each of the nine successive matches they won to make the top eight.
Petterd again proved to be a valuable asset in his second season with the Tigers, playing 17 games and averaging 18 disposals.
The 26-year-old also added 12 goals.
Dea and McDonough were in and out of the team in 2014, playing seven matches apiece, while Elton made solid progress at VFL level after playing just one senior game in 2012.
Thomas, who was a rookie-list selection by Richmond in late 2013, following an eight-season career at Port, earned a promotion to the Tigers' senior list early this year.
The 27-year-old played 13 games, averaging 20.4 disposals and 9.3 contested possessions.
