Other incidents assessed
Contact between Essendon’s Brendon Goddard and Port Adelaide’s Robbie Gray from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. A free kick had been paid against Goddard for marking interference. As the players were preparing to move up the field, Gray and Goddard came into contact. Goddard pushed Gray with both hands and the Port Adelaide player briefly went to ground. It was the view of the panel that Goddard’s action was not a striking motion and no further action was taken.
