Richmond midfielder Shane Edwards is set for a one off mid-season number change for the Dream Time match.

Edwards, who normally wears 10, will wear 67 in the match against Essendon at the MCG in round 10 if he is fit to be selected.

Richmond has sought and gained approval from the AFL for the unusual switch.

The number 67 pays tribute to the 1967 Australian Referendum which took place on May 27, 1967 and allowed Indigenous Australians to be counted in the census.

The Dream Time game takes place 50 years to the day since the referendum passed.

Edwards is recovering from a hip injury but is expected to be fit for the game.
