The AFL wishes to advise the match review panel has reviewed the weekend’s matches.

This is a total of five activation points, resulting in a classification of a level two offence, drawing 250 demerit points and a two-match sanction. He has 60 demerit points carried over from within the last 12 months, increasing the penalty to 310 points and a three-match sanction. An early plea reduces the sanction by 25 per cent to 232.50 points and a two-match sanction.

The incident was assessed as reckless conduct (two points), low impact (one point) and high contact (two points).

This is a total of three activation points, resulting in a classification of a level one offence, drawing 125 demerit points and a one-match sanction.

An early plea reduces the penalty by 25 per cent to a reprimand and 70.31 points towards his future record.

Other incidents assessed
The match day report laid against West Coast’s Beau Waters for engaging in rough conduct against North Melbourne’s Leigh Adams was assessed. The panel said Adams was chasing West Coast player Ashley Smith in a bid to tackle his opponent. Waters came in to the contest to shepherd for his teammate and delivered a bump to the North Melbourne player. The bump was not considered excessively forceful. The bumped player was involved in the play and the bumped player was attempting to tackle the player with the ball, and was able to influence the contest. The panel said Waters did not run far to deliver the bump and he did not raise his elbow when delivering the bump. Waters did not leave the ground in his bumping action and it was the view of the panel the North Melbourne player should have expected contact in this situation. It was therefore ruled that Waters’ actions did not constitute a reportable offence.

Contact between the Western Bulldogs’ Ben Hudson and the Sydney Swans’ Dan Hannebery from the fourth quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The panel said Hannebery had kicked the ball when Hudson came towards him to bump him. The contact was made to Hannebery’s left shoulder and body, and contact was not made to the head. A medical report said the Sydney Swans’ player suffered no injury. The bump, while late, was not deemed to be excessive in the circumstances and Hudson’s actions were not deemed to be reportable.

Contact between Port Adelaide’s Domenic Cassisi and Melbourne’s Jack Watts from the third quarter of Sunday’s game was assessed. Melbourne player Nathan Jones was tackled by a Port Adelaide player and went to kick the ball. Cassisi firstly attempted to smother the kick by player Jones and then tried to gather the ball. In the course of trying to take the ball, he made high contact with player Watts. The action was not considered a striking motion and no further action was taken.
