Edwards sticks with Tigers

Michael O'Loughlin has reluctantly accepted Shane Edwards' decision to play for Richmond on Friday night in Alice Springs instead of for the indigenous All Stars team with which he has spent this week in camp.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick insisted on having Edwards as part of his squad.

''Damien, I guess, has the last say on that and good luck to him, but there's absolutely no grudges towards Shane for playing at Richmond,'' O'Loughlin said
