Other incidents assessed:
The match day report laid against Fremantle’s Zac Clarke for engaging in rough conduct against the Sydney Swans’ Ben McGlynn was assessed. The panel said contact was both players were moving towards the ball to contest for possession and McGlynn lunged forward to take the ball. Contact was made by Clarke’s leg and it was the view of the panel the Fremantle player was seeking to win the ball and his actions weren’t seen as a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
 
The match day report laid against St Kilda’s Jason Gram for making forceful contact from front-on against North Melbourne’s Cruize Garlett was assessed. The force was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
 
Contact between Port Adelaide’s Brett Ebert and West Coast’s Will Schofield from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The panel said Schofield was running towards Ebert to place a shepherd for team mate Luke Shuey. Ebert raised his arms to push the West Coast player away and high contact was made. The action was seen as a pushing action and not a striking action. No further action was taken.
 
Contact between North Melbourne’s Ben Warren and St Kilda’s Sean Dempster from the third quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The panel said Dempster was chasing North Melbourne’s Lindsay Thomas as the pair ran towards goal. Player Warren placed a block on the St Kilda player and contacted him high. The action was not seen as a reportable offence and no further action was taken.
