Eggmolesse-Smith played nine games, while Garthwaite managed the 14 appearances for the Tigers.
Richmond General Manager- Football Talent, Blair Hartley paid tribute to the duo for the contribution to the Tigers.
“We thank Ryan for his continued effort and application across five years at Richmond,” he said.
“Derek likewise worked really hard throughout his four years with us, since initially being selected as our first ever NGA prospect.
“They both played a role in our recent success, and we wish them well for the future.”
The Tigers also delisted yet-to-debut pair Noah Cumberl and Bigoa Nyuon but have committed to redrafting the pair as rookies.
Derek Eggmolesse-Smith and Ryan Garthwaite will not be offered contracts for the 2022 season.
Thanks, Eggy & Garthy 💛

It's a positive show of faith in the young pair who missed the entirety of their debut seasons with injuries respectively.
