STAR flag Tigers Trent Cotchin, Shai Bolton, Dion Prestia and Josh Caddy are among six changes made by Richmond ahead of its clash with Adelaide.

Young tall Callum Coleman-Jones is set to play his first game since a 10-match ban for a COVID-19 breach last year, while David Astbury is out with Achilles soreness and Daniel Rioli has been dropped ahead of Sir Doug Nicholls Round.
