She may turn out to be the missing piece of the puzzle for the Pies, who in the latter portion of the season continually pushed key defender Ash Brazill forward as they searched for an additional tall target next to Chloe Molloy and Sophie Alexander.

The 23-year-old Shevlin will also be at her third club, having been a rookie at Melbourne before making her debut with the Pies, playing 13 games between 2019 and 2021.

Shevlin (174cm) could add some height on the wing for Richmond, who usually run with the shorter Hannah Burchell and Kate Dempsey, and can also play up forward or in defence.

Collingwood is at some point also set to land delisted Blue Alison Downie as ruck cover, following the retirement of Sharni Norder.
