Richmond coach Damien Hardwick has demanded strong focus and intensity from his players when they emerge from their mid-season AFL bye against Brisbane at the MCG.

The Tigers brought in Nick Vlastuin and Connor Menadue for Saturday's clash, while exciting youngster Daniel Rioli will miss as he attends a family funeral in the Northern Territory.

Richmond disappointed on their way to 13th spot with a 5-7 record before the bye, but 17th-placed Brisbane have fared even worse with just one win for the season.
