Star Richmond pair Jack Riewoldt and Dylan Grimes will be available for Saturday night’s blockbuster Dreamtime at the ‘G clash with Essendon.

Riewoldt had been in doubt after being struck by Jake Carlisle and suffering a concussion in the opening minutes of last week’s match against St Kilda.

Riewoldt failed to take any further part in the game and Carlisle was suspended for two weeks for the hit.

Meanwhile, Grimes has been absent since round nine due to a back injury.

But coach Damien Hardwick confirmed on Thursday that both will be fit to face the Bombers. 

And in a further boost for the Tigers, premiership hero Daniel Rioli will play his first full game in the VFL this weekend.

Rioli hasn’t played a senior game since breaking his foot in last year’s grand final.
