Embattled Richmond coach Damien Hardwick says he will not be swayed by external noise as he attempts to arrest the Tigers' alarming late-season slide.

Pressure has mounted on Hardwick after heavy losses to Hawthorn and Greater Western Sydney in the past fortnight, but the defiant coach says calls for change from outside the club will not be a factor as he tinkers with his game plan and squad with an eye on next season.

The Tigers take on Collingwood at the MCG on Friday night, with Hardwick backing his players to improve significantly on recent performances.
