Richmond coach Adem Yze wields the axe for blockbuster against Carlton

Richmond coach Adem Yze has wielded the axe for Thursday night’s AFL blockbuster clash with Carlton.

The Tigers were hammered by Gold Coast in their Opening Round match last week and four players have paid the price.

Sam Banks, Jacob Koschitzke, Sam Naismith, Samson Ryan have all been dumped to make way for returning stars Dustin Martin, Toby Nankervis, Tom Lynch and Rhyan Mansell.

Meanwhile, Carlton have been forced into just one change after losing inspirational veteran Sam Docherty (knee) for the rest of the season.

The Blues added small forward Corey Durdin to the team that forced an Opening Round boilover against the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba.
