TEAMS: Star Tiger returns, Suns boost firepower

RICHMOND will welcome back star midfielder Monique Conti for its Friday night clash with Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium, in a huge boost for the Tigers seeking their second NAB AFL Women's victory.

Conti was a late withdrawal with a hamstring problem ahead of the Tigers' round six clash with North Melbourne, which they eventually lost by 35 points.

She will be joined in the side by tall utility Laura McClelland, who comes in for her first game of the season. Defender Phoebe Monahan (omitted) and midfielder Hannah Burchell (managed) go out of the Tigers' side.

The Suns will be without their reigning club champion, midfielder Jamie Stanton, who will miss the rest of the season after suffering a nasty lower leg injury in a tackle against Adelaide.

Gold Coast has also omitted forward Jordann Hickey, while recalling fellow attackers Maddison Levi and Brittany Perry.
