Richmond ponder Lynch replacement options

Richmond will ponder fielding a smaller forward line as they attempt to manoeuvre through at least two AFL games without spearhead Tom Lynch.

The in-form key forward suffered a hamstring strain in Saturday’s win over Essendon and is set to miss games against Sydney and Port Adelaide, with the bye in between, before returning against Carlton.

Coach Damien Hardwick was contemplating whether to deploy a smaller forward line or to throw ruckman Ivan Soldo forward to support Jack Riewoldt against Sydney on Friday night.

“(Lynch has) got a strain. So he’ll be (back) after the bye at some stage. It’s probably more than likely the second game after the bye,” Hardwick said.

“It’ll probably more than likely be the Carlton game we think at this stage.”

Going small could on the cards, with Hardwick pointing to Carlton’s success in using Charlie Curnow as the sole big man against Sydney.
