'Minor hammy' the only fresh concern for Tigers

RICHMOND midfielder Dion Prestia has suffered a minor hamstring injury and will be missing when the premiers take a close to full strength side to Wangaratta for Saturday's JLT Community Series clash against Essendon.

Prestia suffered the injury a week and a half ago and was missing when the Tigers held a match simulation session at Punt Road Oval last Sunday featuring their premiership stars.

With only two practice matches available to prepare for the season opener against Carlton, football manager Neil Balme said Prestia was targeting the second pre-season game against North Melbourne on March 7 to return.

"He had a minor hammy a week and a half ago, but he's not too bad. We're certainly hopeful he'll play JLT two," Balme told

Minor hammy described by Balme may mean he's out for the year! :lol
