Other Incidents Assessed:

The match day charge laid against Richmond’s Jacob Townsend for engaging in rough conduct against Collingwood’s Jackson Ramsay was assessed. The panel said Townsend reached down on his hands and knees to gain possession of the ball and high contact was made with his opponent Ramsay. The panel said that while high contact was made, it was their view Townsend was contesting the ball and he had no realistic alternative way to contest the ball in the circumstances. No further action was taken.

The match day charge laid against Richmond’s Nick Vlastuin for engaging in rough conduct against Collingwood’s Taylor Adams was assessed. The panel said Adams had the ball and disposed of it with a kick as Vlastuin approached him. Vlastuin bumped Adams after he had disposed of the ball and high contact was made. It was the view of the panel the force used was not sufficient to constitute a report. No further action was taken.

The match day charge laid against Essendon’s Patrick Ambrose for engaging in rough conduct against Melbourne’s James Harmes was assessed. Harmes took possession of the ball when Ambrose tackled him. Ambrose took the Melbourne player to ground with his tackle and a free kick was paid for a dangerous tackle. It was the view of the panel there was insufficient force used to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

The match day charge laid against the Brisbane Lion’s Darcy Gardiner for engaging in rough conduct against North Melbourne’s Daniel Wells was assessed. The panel said Wells was leading for a mark with Gardiner coming towards him from the opposite direction. Gardiner had his fist out to spoil and it was the panel’s view that the Brisbane player made a legitimate attempt to spoil as Wells completed the mark, with the players clashing heads in the contest. After speaking to the umpire who laid the matchday report, it was the panel’s view that Gardiner was entitled to spoil and the contact between the player’s heads was accidental. No further action was taken.

Contact between Port Adelaide’s Tom Jonas and the Adelaide Crows’ Rory Laird from the third quarter of Saturday’s game was assessed. The panel said Adelaide’s Scott Thompson had the ball when Laird called for the ball from his teammate from within five metres away. Jonas bumped Laird to the side of the body. It was the view of the panel that Jonas’ actions were not unreasonable in the circumstances given that Laird was within five metres of the ball. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Geelong Cats’ Rhys Stanley and the GWS Giants’ Aidan Corr from the third quarter of Sunday’s game was assessed. The panel said that contact by Stanley was made with an open hand and there was insufficient force used to constitute a report. No further action was taken.

  1. I’m more interested if Mitch Duncan is going to be ok to play after being on the receiving end of the greatest tackle ever!

  2. I was at that game and that tackle was like watching a car accident. You can see what’s going to happen, it’s all unfolding in slow motion and you know you should look away – but you can’t. Poor Mitch, hope he’s OK for this week.

    And the Mummy is back, ladies and gentlemen.
