Other incidents assessed
The match day report laid against West Coast’s Ashley Hansen for striking North Melbourne’s Daniel Wells during the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel that Hansen’s arm was extended in a tackling motion, not a striking motion and that the force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
 
Contact between three Melbourne players and Adelaide’s Patrick Dangerfield from the third quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The panel said that Dangerfield had the ball in a contested situation and was attempting to move through a pack when he was gang-tackled by three players and taken to ground. The tackle by the Melbourne players was one action only, with the momentum of the players taking Dangerfield forward. The Melbourne players did not sling Dangerfield to the ground in the tackle. No further action was taken.
 
Contact between the Western Bulldogs’ Jarrod Harbrow and Hawthorn’s Jordan Lewis from the second quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The panel said that both Harbrow and Lewis had their eyes on the ball at all times in the lead-up to contact being made. Harbrow spoiled the ball before contact was made with Lewis. His actions were deemed a legitimate attempt to spoil the ball. No further action was taken.
