Cotchin to miss AFL Eagles date

Cotchin to miss AFL Eagles date

Richmond will hold back skipper Trent Cotchin from returning in Sunday’s mouth-watering clash with West Coast to give him more time to recover from his hamstring issue.

The MCG match, a possible grand final preview, has come too soon for the 29-year-old with the Tigers pencilling in the round 23 match with Brisbane for his return.

“After discussions with our medical staff, we felt that giving Trent an extra week to train and prepare for his return to playing is the best approach,” said club football boss Neil Balme.
