Aussie Rules: Young gun ruled out for Tigers

Richmond Tigers will be without Josh Gibcus for the clash against Hawthorn on Saturday but Dion Prestia and Nick Vlastuin are set to return for coach Damien Hardwick.

The Tigers are priced at 1/3 to beat the Hawks and Hardwick will make one or two changes to the side that beat Collingwood at the MCG last weekend.

Gibcus to miss out

19-year-old Gibcus has been a revelation for the Tigers this season when playing in seven of the eight games so far. However he has entered the AFL’s health and safety protocols and will miss out against Hawthorn.

Prestia and Vlastuin will return from illness though, while Robbie Tarrant could come in to replace Gibcus.

"Robbie Tarrant will certainly put his hand up. We're also pleased with how 'Biggy' Nyuon is going as well. We'll look at both of those two boys today," Hardwick told reporters.

"Robbie has a bit of a hip complaint that he's been nursing. He's an experienced campaigner and knows how to play the game. We'll have a look at both those boys."

Lambert impressing

Meanwhile Hardwick has also praised Kane Lambert who continues to play an important role after overcoming a hip complaint that threatened to end his career.

"He is week-to-week. He'll give me an understanding of how he feels today and whether he's right to go. Kane is always in my side, but it's basically up to Kane whether he plays or not,” Hardwick added.
