Richmond coach Damien Hardwick has confirmed the news that all Richmond fans wanted to hear.

Brett Deledio is a confirmed starter for this weekend's game against Port Adelaide after recovering from a quad injury.

Deledio is yet to play a game for the Tigers this season and it's evident just how much the Tigers rely on their star midfielder.

Hardwick also confirmed that Jack Riewoldt is right to go, despite suffering an ankle sprain late in the game against the Demons.

"Jack has recovered remarkably well, and he'll be putting his hand up to play," Hardwick said.

The Tigers will be without star defender Alex Rance for the next two weeks and Hardwick added to Rance's comments on Tuesday saying how remorseful Rance is.

Hardwick also flagged that key position prospect Ben Griffiths is a good chance to come into the side as they look to replace the suspended Rance.
