Tigers defender could come under scrutiny from the MRP

Richmond captain Trent Cotchin has been the talk of the town following the Tigers’ 36-point preliminary final win over GWS on Saturday night due to his bump on Giant Dylan Shiel.

Shiel suffered a delayed concussion after colliding with Cotchin, who has already received two fines for separate incidents this season, meaning one more fine will result in a suspension.

However, he is not the only Tiger who will be sweating on the MRP’s result ahead of this week’s Grand Final, with Brandon Ellis flooring GWS onballer Lachie Whitfield in the fourth term.

Ellis and Whitfield ran towards a loose ball, with Whitfield reaching the ball first and taking possession, before Ellis collected the young midfielder with a shoulder to the jaw.

The Match Review Panel results from preliminary final weekend will be released on Monday afternoon.
