RICHMOND forward Tom Lynch is free to play in Saturday's Dreamtime at the 'G match with Essendon after escaping suspension for his wayward elbow, but teammate Marlion Pickett hasn't been so lucky.

Lynch faced a nervous wait after his raised elbow caught Hawthorn's Jarman Impey high in the Tigers' win on Saturday.


Impey suffered a cut to his face after charging in and being struck by Lynch's elbow.

But Lynch is free to play in the Dreamtime clash after the AFL's Match Review Officer deemed the Coleman Medal leader's actions "were not unreasonable in the circumstances".
