HAWTHORN has lost key defender James Frawley for Sunday's clash with Richmond.
Frawley has been battling hamstring tightness, having missed three games earlier in the season due to the same injury, and has been replaced in the final team by Conor Glass.

"James reported some tightness in his hamstring earlier in the week," Hawthorn's football boss Graham Wright said in a statement prior to Sunday's game at the MCG.
"We have decided to leave him out of today's side as he wasn't quite 100 per cent."
The Hawks will replace Frawley with Glass, who returns for his first game of the season.
Richmond is unchanged, having included Ivan Soldo and Nick Vlastuin this week for injured duo Toby Nankervis and Jack Ross.
Meanwhile, Blue David Cuningham (general soreness) is a late out for the clash between Greater Western Sydney and Carlton at Giants Stadium.
