Twenty-four AFLW Tigers have recommitted to the Club ahead of the upcoming season.
Eleven inaugural AFLW Tigers will remain at Tigerland for Richmond's fourth season in the competition, including the likes of Monique Conti, Rebecca Miller and Gabby Seymour.
The entire leadership group in skipper Katie Brennan and co-vice captains Sarah Hosking and Harriet Cordner, have also committed to the Yellow & Black.
Richmond's 2022 number one draft pick, Ellie McKenzie, will run out in her third season as a Tiger, while last season's Sign and Trade Period recruits, Jess Hosking, Maddie Shevlin and Poppy Kelly are also locked in for the upcoming season.
Former top-up players Meg Macdonald and Beth Lynch, who were added to the Tigers' primary list prior to last season, have each earned another contract off the back of their strong performances in the Yellow and Black.
Cordner and Hannah Burchell have been placed on Richmond's inactive list, the duo having suffered ACL injuries earlier this year.
Richmond currently holds picks 38, 59, 62 and 86 in the AFLW Draft to be held on June 29.
Head of Richmond's Football Kate Sheahan said it was an excellent show of support for what the Richmond Women's program is building.
"We're extremely proud that we've been able to retain our talent throughout the recent expansion period, demonstrating our players' commitment to our Club and program," Sheahan said.
"It's a statement that shows our players are hungry and determined to stick together to work towards our shared goal.
"It's an exciting time for our Club as we approach our fourth season in the competition, and to have our emerging core group locked in is a promising glimpse into our future.
"We're also excited by the new talent we've brought onto our list throughout the sign and trade period and the boost they will bring to our existing list."

Taylor Stahl retired…hope she’s ok

“It has not sunk in yet that I will not be playing anymore, but I know that my health is more important than a game of football,” says Stahl​

Yeah, it's sudden I suppose, and like you I hope it's not head-knock related, but if so, good call!
