Townsend to miss through suspension

Richmond forward Jacob Townsend will be unavailable for selection this weekend after accepting a one-match suspension for striking in the VFL last Saturday.

Townsend received the ban for striking Box Hill's Andrew Moore in the second quarter of Richmond VFL’s 47-point win.

The 25-year-old will be unavailable for selection at both senior and reserve-level this weekend, for games against Adelaide and Essendon, respectively.

In other Richmond VFL tribunal news, Jake Aarts has accepted a two-match sanction for engaging in rough conduct against Box Hill's Nelson Lane.
