Richmond forward Tom Lynch will front the AFL Tribunal this week following a collision in a marking contest during yesterday's loss to the Western Bulldogs.

Lynch was cited for contact with Alex Keath in the opening term of Saturday’s five-point loss, which saw the Bulldog defender subbed out of the match.

Lynch has been charged with rough conduct (first offence) following the Match Review Officer's review of the game.

The offence has been graded as careless conduct, severe impact and high contact.
