Richmond have been hit with major collateral following Friday night’s dream win over Geelong on the Gold Coast.

The Tigers ran through the premiership favourites to take hold of a top-three place on the ladder, but could be without two key names for their push for a second consecutive premiership.

Ruckman Ivan Soldo is facing a long stint on the sidelines after suffering an ACL injury while star forward Tom Lynch looks to have strained his hamstring.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, coach Damien Hardwick gave un update on the injured pair, per

“Soldo we think has got a significant knee injury, we’ll wait to confirm that via scans which is disappointing. He’s been such an important player for us over the course of this year and last,” Hardwick said post-game.

“Tom’s got a hamstring, we’re not quite sure of the severity of that at the moment, he’ll probably have scans on that on Monday also.

“They’re two big losses but we think we’ve got some players who can step up and fill the void. It provides opportunity [to] some guys back at our hub.”

Hardwick feared the worst in regard to his No.1 ruckman.

“It’s still pretty raw and probably won’t settle in until tomorrow when he gets a better understanding of exactly what we’re looking at,” he said.

“For him to go down is incredibly disappointing for not only our footy club, but for Soldo and his family back home.”
