Martin, Cotchin and co. all chances to line up in Wangaratta

LOCAL Richmond supporters could be in for a treat next Saturday with reigning Brownlow Medallist Dusty Martin a chance to line-up in the JLT match against Essendon at the Norm Minns Oval.

With the introduction of AFLX forcing the AFL to reduce the JLT pre-season competition to two games, clubs have limited preparations before round one.

That means Martin as well as skipper Trent Cotchin and star duo Alex Rance and Jack Riewoldt could take their place against the Bombers.

Richmond general manager of football, Neil Balme, said teams for next week were yet to be selected but didn’t rule out the Tigers loading up with premiership stars.

“Because of the program we have – a bit of AFLX this week – we only have the two JLT matches before the start of the season,” he said.

“So everyone that is wanting to play round one will really want to get a decent run – so we’ll be taking it relatively seriously.

While small forward Daniel Rioli is also sidelined as he recovers from foot surgery [along with Prestia's hammy], the premiers will otherwise be at full strength on Saturday.

Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin will play, alongside captain Trent Cotchin, star forward Jack Riewoldt and All Australian defender Alex Rance, with playing time crucial 30 days out from the season opener.

"We've only got two games … so there'll be no resting blokes just for the fun of it," Balme said.   

"It's not going to be easy to pick the team, because there's not many unavailable.

"A few blokes will be disappointed they don't get a game, because it'll be like genuine selection."

Shaun Hampson (back) will be unavailable, while half-back Oleg Markov has not done the necessary contact work to be selected after off-season shoulder surgery. 

Prized draftee Jack Higgins is fit and available for selection in the JLT Community Series, but Balme said his selection would depend on whether he was in line to play in round one. 

"He's certainly in the chop up to get a run in JLT one, but I reckon he's just on the cusp," Balme said.

Richmond will field a near-full-strength side against a similarly strong Essendon in their opening JLT Community Series match at Wangaratta on Saturday.

The Dons said they were likely to play all three of the recruits they signed during the trade period – Jake Stringer, Devon Smith and Adam Saad.

The dons will do us by about 4 goals - as our biggest strength being pressure and chase will be dialed down.

The Bummers fans will be singing about the result for 18-24 months.

We will finish much higher than them by the end of the year :thumbsup

Essendon sticking to a traditional 3 tall, 3 small forward line whereas we have stuck to our flag winning Jack + smalls one.

As long as we get through with no injuries [touchwood  :pray] that's the most important thing.

They'll be installed as new flag favourites if they beat us.
