Richmond co-captain sent for potentially season-ending surgery

Richmond co-captain sent for potentially season-ending surgery

Richmond defender Dylan Grimes will undergo surgery on his hamstring on Thursday and will likely be touch and go to return in 2022.

The Tigers said on Tuesday that a hamstring strain in the third quarter of Sunday’s win over Brisbane would likely sideline him for the remaining three home and away games.

However, the club revealed on Thursday morning that the co-captain would be sent for surgery.

Coach Damien Hardwick said: “Depending on how far we go, (surgery) gives him his best chance to get back this year.”

However, Richmond stopped short of ruling the 31-year-old out for the rest of the season.

Richmond plays Port Adelaide in Round 21, where young Power tall Todd Marshall will also miss the clash due to the AFL’s health and safety protocols.
