SATURDAY, MARCH 11
Richmond v Collingwood, Ted Summerton Reserve (Moe), 1.10pm AEDT
COLLINGWOOD has picked Ben Reid for the first time in 2017 for Saturday’s JLT Community Series clash with Richmond at Moe.
The All Australian carried a posterior cruciate ligament for most of last season before having surgery and his return will add plenty to the Magpie backline.
Tim Broomhead will play his first game for the Pies since last May, while they have named ruckman Brodie Grundy despite the corked calf he suffered at training during the week.
Josh Smith has also been named despite an ankle injury.
Richmond defender Bachar Houli will step out for the first time this year. The long-kicking Houli has overcome a hamstring in time to get some much-needed match practice ahead of the season opener against Carlton in a fortnight.
Dion Prestia and Shane Edwards also return to the side after being rested last week, while the Tigers squad also includes youngsters Jayden Short, Connor Menadue, Mabior Chol, Tyson Stengle and Ivan Soldo. Among those to miss include Corey Ellis and Kane Lambert.
