Neil Balme gives an update on Dan Butler’s return
Richmond GM of football Neil Blame has provided an update on Dan Butler’s return to the senior side saying he will be ‘unlikely’ to play in Thursday nights final against the Hawks after playing VFL this weekend.
With such a short turnaround after the reserves game on Saturday, Balme says that Butler “hasn’t played a lot of football this year, but he would be unlikely with the short turn around.”
Balme also said that the Tigers would have preffered the Thursday final to be on another day, but the club aren’t complaining.
“I don’t think we really mind when the game is. It probably would be more convenient it was at another time, it would be better for our VFL program. We won’t complain though, it could be worse, we could be not playing at all.”
