Tom Lynch at Richmond training on Thursday morning.

Tom Lynch has overcome a groin injury to be passed fit to play in Thursday night's elimination final against Brisbane at the Gabba.

The key forward,  who is closing in on a career-best season with 60 goals so far, expects Noah Cumberland to shake off an ankle scare to play as well after he ran well at training on Saturday.

But superstar Dustin Martin still has to prove his fitness despite looking good in contact drills.


Martin has missed the last seven matches because of hamstring injuries and has completed just seven games this season.

"He has a bit more to go through on Monday and fingers crossed because we'd love to have him out there," Lynch said.

Richmond hold fond memories of the Gabba, having claimed the 2020 premiership there in a historic grand final against Geelong.

But they have been beaten by home side Brisbane there in each of the last two seasons.


This year, in round 20, the Tigers came from behind to knock off the Lions in a thriller at the MCG as Lynch and Cumberland combined for nine goals.

"Brisbane are a tough side up there and they've proven over the last four or five years at the Gabba they're tough to beat," Lynch said.

"We won't be daunted by going up there because we're familiar with it but we've got to respect them."
