October 24, 2020
Prestia scored two goals to go with 14 disposals (seven kicks, seven handballs) and made five tackles during Saturday's 81-50 Grand Final win over Geelong.
Prestia ended the season in style after playing in every match in October. He dealt with an ankle injury throughout the summer that kept him out from July through September and will feel great to contribute to a second straight premiership win for the Tigers. Prestia will be one to watch if he can stay healthy next year.

Prestia (ankle) will be available for the Tigers' qualifying round match versus Brisbane on Friday.
Prestia has been sidelined since early July after undergoing ankle surgery but has trained the last couple of weeks and took part in an internal practice match last Friday that went without issue. He seems a likely inclusion in the Tigers' midfield.
Headed for surgery

Prestia is slated to undergo surgery on his ankle and will be out indefinitely with what Richmond is calling a medium-term injury, FoxSports.com.au reports.
The Tigers determined that both Prestia and ruckman Toby Nankervis would require procedures after the two exited Sunday's win over Melbourne early with syndesmosis injuries. While no firm timeline has been set for Prestia's return, he'll likely require multiple weeks to heal up from surgery.

Prestia was removed in the second half of Sunday's 79-52 win over Melbourne in Round 5 with an ankle injury, ABC.net.au reports.
Prestia finished with 19 disposals before he required assistance off the field after picking up the injury. Richmond head coach Damien Hardwick said after the contest that Prestia will be sent in for scans before the team has a clearer idea on the midfielder's status for the Round 6 match July 12 versus Sydney.
