Aussie Rules: Tigers handed Vlastuin boost

The Richmond Tigers have been boosted by the news key defender Nick Vlastuin could return to action against the Adelaide Crows on Saturday night.

The Tigers are priced at 8/13 to finish in the top eight of the AFL and currently sit 2-2 following their victory over the Western Bulldogs at the weekend.

Return boost

Vlastuin has yet to play this season as he battles back from a hamstring injury but round five against the Crows at the Adelaide Oval had been pencilled in as a possible return date.

Speaking after the win against the Bulldogs coach Damien Hardwick confirmed that was still the case and he will be in line to play if all goes to plan this week.

"He has missed some footy so we'll go through that. He's probable at this stage, he's obviously got to get through training, but he'll be important for us," Hardwick told reporters.

Lynch shines

Meanwhile Tom Lynch was one of the stars of the show against the Bulldogs as he booted four goals during the 38-point win.
And he says it was important they played some high-pressure footy to get the win.

"They've been a great side for a long period of time and we knew we had to be at our best to try and match them,” Lynch said.

“We focused on bringing that pressure as they've got elite ball-users all over the ground. At times they got away from us but we stuck at it and managed to turn it our way."
