Other Incidents Assessed:

Contact between the Adelaide Crows’ Bryce Gibbs and the GWS Giants’ Stephen Coniglio from the third quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The ball is loose and in front of Coniglio, with Gibbs coming towards the contest. The ball bounces between Coniglio’s legs and he puts his head down, in a bid to track the ball and try and take possession. Gibbs is moving towards the loose ball and his knee comes into contact with Coniglio’s head as the Giants’ player ducks his head down to reach between his legs for the ball. It was the view of the Match Review Officer that Gibbs’ actions were not unreasonable in the circumstances and the contact was caused by circumstances outside the Adelaide player’s control. No further action was taken.

  1. As a Fyfe owner , having him rubbed out for a week hurts , especially during the bye rounds , but in all fairness , how was that hit not 2 weeks , perhaps they wanted him to contest the decision so they can let him off because he is the Brownlow front runner , or because he brings in the crowds ,
    seriously bad decision , once Fyfe realized he had run under the ball , he reverted to plan B , kept running straight at the Collingwood player , who still had his eyes on the ball , jumped 1-2 ft off the ground & collected him with a cocked forearm , front on ,
    should have been at least 2 to 3 weeks , if the AFL were serious about rubbing out violent acts that is , Hawkins or Nic Nat wooda copped 3 minimum ,
    the AFL suspend players for sloppy tackles during split second heat of the moment actions , where as Fyfe gets only 1 week for what was effectively an opportunistic king hit on an unsuspecting player running towards him , the MRPs different rules for different players policy is something the AFL really needs to address , perhaps a system where appealing the MRP decision falls to a second group of MRP that only handle appeals & that have nothing to do with the original decision , who have the power to nail a player for deliberate violent acts or exonerate if something happens within the spirit of the game .. go hawks

  2. MRP said intentional contact, low impact.
    For mine it looked clumsy and accidental. My first thoughts were he will get a fine. Stunned he got a week.

    1. Yeah I’ll be shocked if he doesn’t get off. Not saying he should but there’s a lot of precedence this year to grade that as careless not intentional. Mitchell’s cheap shot on Goldy was graded careless when that was clearly intentional. Ironically Mitchells now the brownlow favourite…

  3. No real problem with Fyfe decision, even as an owner, except that the Burton decision makes a mockery of any subsequent rub out. Not a Freo fan (hater in fact) but they have a good case that their players often seem to be used as correctives or examples.
