RICHMOND and Geelong will head into Saturday night's historic Toyota AFL Grand Final unchanged from their preliminary final line-ups.

The Tigers will stick with the same 22 that beat Port Adelaide last week as they search for their third flag in four years, with Josh Caddy, Mabior Chol, Oleg Markov and Jake Aarts named as emergencies.

Tom Hawkins, after being ill earlier this week, is a certain starter in the Cats' first Grand Final appearance since their 2011 premiership win.
