Martin aggravates hamstring, will be out longer

Richmond superstar Dustin Martin has had a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury and is expected to be out for several more weeks, putting him at risk of missing the rest of the season as the Tigers fight to cement a finals spot.

The Tigers tweeted a brief update on Friday stating Martin would be “sidelined for the medium term” after an “aggravation in his hamstring”.

Martin has been out of the side since he was subbed out of the win over West Coast on July 3 and it’s likely the Tigers will be cautious in deciding when they bring him back into the side after this latest setback.

Zantuck wins court bid, can sue Richmond for alleged negligence

Former Richmond footballer Ty Zantuck has won a “landmark” decision in the Victorian Supreme Court giving him more time to prosecute his claims against the Tigers for a back injury and repeated head trauma.

Associate Justice Mary-Jane Ierodiaconou released her findings on Tuesday, after Zantuck sued the club and two doctors – current club doctor Greg Hickey and former club doctor Chris Bradshaw – over allegations they breached their duty of care in the treatment of his back injury when he played in 68 matches for the Tigers between 2000 and 2004.

His lawyers, using video evidence of several clashes, had also told the court that Zantuck had endured multiple concussions, leaving him with brain trauma. Zantuck has previously spoken of having had suicidal thoughts.
