Aussie Rules: Tigers duo to miss Swans clash

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick says both Kane Lambert and Tom Lynch will sit out the clash against Sydney next Friday after picking up injuries in the win over Essendon.

The Tigers are pushing to finish in the top eight of the AFL this season and currently sit in seventh spot on the ladder following the 32-point win over the Bombers.

Injury concerns for Tigers

The win came at a cost however. Lambert who has been battling with hip issues was taken out of the game with hip soreness while Lynch also left the park with a hamstring issue.

The Tigers have a bye after next week’s game against Sydney so they will take no risks and it gives them time to get the duo back fit.

Hardwick saluted the efforts of Lambert who puts himself through the mill to get himself out on the pitch. But he does have concerns over the player.

"Those boys won't play next week. We'll assess the damage and go from there," Hardwick told reporters after the win. "It is concerning. Any other player wouldn’t be playing, to be perfectly honest. What he does to get up for games is incredible.

"We thought we would get one, at a maximum two games, he's played the last four. Probably shows you how important he is that we start winning our games.”

Graham boost

There is some good news though as Jack Graham, who missed the win over Essendon with a toe injury, should be fit to face Sydney.

"He was touch and go. We thought he was no chance. He pushed and wanted to play such a significant game and then captain's run he just decided he wasn’t quite right," Hardwick added.

"We had fit players. Jack Ross came in and did a really good job, but Jack will be available to play next week at this stage."
