Nick Riewoldt will be touch and go whilst they are still without Jack Billings. For the Tigers, Ivan Maric, Matt McDonough and Ben Lennon are in. Steven Morris (omit), Shane Edwards (leg) and Ty Vickery (suspension) are out. Those latter two join Ben Griffiths are genuine best 22 members who are missing.
