Bauer, who was snatched up by the Tigers at last year's Mid-Season Draft, has been made to wait for his Richmond debut but has shone at the VFL level this season.
The 21-year-old has slotted two after-the-siren match-winners for Richmond's VFL side this season, first against the GWS Giants reserves, and most recently last weekend against the Brisbane Lions' twos, handing the Tigers a pair of thrilling victories.
The 20-year-old Banks, meanwhile, chosen in Round 2 of the 2021 National Draft by the Tigers, is a smooth-moving, quality disposer of the ball from a wing position.
Double debut 👏
Sam Banks and Jacob Bauer will line up against the Swans on Thursday night.
