Ahead of some major contract talks, Richmond premiership stars Shai Bolton and Daniel Rioli have moved on from their manager Ralph Carr.

Bolton has moved to Perth-based agent Anthony Van Der Wielen, who helped orchestrate the Tim Kelly move from Geelong to West Coast.

The 23-year-old has made strides recently to become one of the competition's most dynamic players.

Having signed a two-year extension last year, preliminary talks will have begun on a new deal to remain at Tigerland beyond 2023.

Meanwhile, Rioli is now linked with Kapital Sports, who are based in Melbourne.

The three-time premiership player has enjoyed a switch to defence, a move that has seen him revitalised in 2022, though it is believed that the 25-year-old has put contract talks on hold after departing from his management.

With the two Tigers departing, that leaves Carr managing three other players in the league, fellow Tiger Dustin Martin, Gold Coast's Mabior Chol and Geelong's Quinton Narkle.
