Other Incidents Assessed:

Contact between the GWS Giants’ Tomas Bugg and St Kilda’s Nick Riewoldt from the fourth quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The panel reviewed all available vision, including a reverse angle shot down the ground of the piece of play in question. The ball was close to the boundary line with St Kilda’s Ahmed Saad under pressure from an opponent. Saad, who was being tackled, handballed the ball back towards teammates Josh Bruce and Riewoldt. Bruce took possession of the ball while Riewoldt stepped back into the path of the oncoming Bugg. Bugg made contact to the back of Riewoldt front-on, and not with a bumping action. It was the view of the panel that while Riewoldt would have earned a free kick for in-the-back if the contact was seen by the umpire at the time, Bugg’s actions were not unreasonable in the circumstances in terms of a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

UPDATE

GEELONG star Steve Johnson has escaped suspension and can instead accept a $1000 fine for his off-the-ball hit on Hawthorn midfielder Sam Mitchell in Monday’s clash at the MCG.

In the only incident penalised by the Match Review Panel out of the Easter Monday match, Johnson’s hit was classified as careless conduct with medium impact to the body.

It means his existing bad record of two matches suspended in the past two seasons doesn’t come into play.

If Johnson’s hit had been deemed intentional, he would have faced at least a two-game suspension based on his record.

The revamped MRP now issues fines for incidents that would have been penalised with a one-match suspension under the old system in 2014.

When a player is issued with his third fine for low-grade incidents, however, they will be handed a one-match suspension.

Meanwhile, Richmond’s Brett Deledio and Gold Coast’s Matt Shaw have both accepted one-match bans from the MRP.

Deledio was charged with engaging in rough conduct against Carlton’s Simon White, Carlton, in the opening minute of Thursday’s night match.

It was classified as careless contact with medium impact to the head, which drew a two-week ban, but Deledio has accepted a one-match sanction with an early plea.

Shaw was charged with rough conduct against Demon Dean Kent during the first quarter on Saturday’s clash, and has accepted a one-match sanction with an early plea.

Collingwood’s Jamie Elliott was charged with tripping Lion Lewis Taylor in the last quarter at the Gabba on Saturday night, and has accepted a $1000 sanction with an early plea.

Fremantle’s Zac Clarke was charged with tripping Port Adelaide’s Jared Polec during the second quarter at Domain Stadium on Sunday. He, too, has accepted a $1000 sanction with an early plea, as has Power midfielder Brad Ebert who was charged with tripping Fremantle’s Cameron Sutcliffe.

Port’s Tom Jonas was charged with striking Fremantle’s Chris Mayne during the third quarter and the Power defender has accepted a $1000 fine with an early plea, down from $1500 given the intentional conduct.
