AFL teams: Tigers sweating Cotchin availability


//

Richmond is optimistic that skipper Trent Cotchin will be available to play in Friday night's blockbuster clash against Collingwood despite the impending birth of his third child.

Cotchin's wife Brooke is due to have the couple's third child early next week, but the skipper could be forced to sit out if it occurs any time soon.

However, Tigers coach Damien Hardwick said the team would prepare with the assumption that Cotchin would be available to play against the Magpies.

"There is always a chance that these things happen but it is what it is ... at this stage he is playing and we'll work our way through that if something changes," he said.

"He's in the side at this stage, not sure exactly when (the birth) is going to happen obviously. But we ope he gets through the game like he did last week."

While Cotchin may be named, the same cannot be said about ruckman Toby Nankervis who will continue his comeback from a long lay-off through the VFL once again.

Here are the full team lists for every team in Round 19:
