RICHMOND forward Tom Lynch will take his place in Thursday night's clash with Hawthorn, despite undergoing scans on a minor foot injury on Monday.

Lynch dismissed reports he was battling a stress injury to his ankle, saying he wouldn't miss a training session due to the lingering problem and said scans earlier this week were simply a precaution.
"I had a scan on my foot yesterday, but it's all good," Lynch said.
"The doctor was being a bit cautious, but I'll play this week. There's nothing to see there, I don't think.
"It was just the foot. The doctor just wanted to make sure it's all clear, but I'll be fine. I'm training today and I'm playing this weekend, so I'm not worried at all."
Lynch was among the key contributors in last Thursday night's thrilling draw with Collingwood, kicking three goals from 12 disposals as the reigning premiers overturned a 24-point quarter-time deficit to share the spoils.
The Tigers will now be bolstered further as they look to respond against the Hawks this week, with forward Josh Caddy set to be available to play having missed round two due to a calf problem.
