Richmond skipper, Trent Cotchin will not play in this Sunday’s clash against West Coast.

Cotchin’s recovery from a minor hamstring strain in Round 19 is tracking well, however the Club has decided to give Cotchin more time to make 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,” Richmond General Manager – Football, Neil Balme said.

The Club expects Cotchin to be available to take on the Brisbane Lions in Round 23.
