Richmond return from the bye looking to find some consistency after an agonising 85-81 defeat to West Coast Eagles in Perth.

The Tigers have been struggling to string a run of results together and now sit at 7-6 for the season in eighth spot.

Prior to losing to the Eagles in a game brought forward a week, Richmond had won two straight for the first time since Rounds 1 and 2.

They were 111-83 winners over Adelaide Crows before beating Essendon Bombers 123-84 in Dreamtime in Perth.

The Tigers welcome back Dion Prestia from a hamstring injury, but David Astbury hasn't been rushed back from his Achilles problem.

There is an AFL debut for ruck-forward Samson Ryan as he is handed his first Tigers call up.

Daniel Rioli and Josh Caddy drop out, while Toby Nankervis and key forward Tom Lynch remain sidelined.
