Martin has been back at the club training and had been expected to return for the round eight clash.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick confirmed the selection at his weekly press conference on Thursday morning, on the condition that Martin gets through training.

The Tigers also announced on Thursday that two-time premiership player Josh Caddy was retiring after 174 games. Caddy, previously with the Suns and Cats, spent 12 years in the AFL.
