Other Incidents Assessed:

Contact between West Coast’s Elliot Yeo and the GWS Giants’ Dylan Shiel from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Shiel is tackled by Yeo from behind. The West Coast player puts himself to the side of Shiel in the tackle and brings him immediately to ground. Before the pair go to ground, Yeo releases his left arm from the tackle and uses it to brace for contact with the ground. It was the view of the Match Review Officer the tackle was not careless and was not unreasonable in the circumstances.

Contact between Fremantle’s Nat Fyfe and St Kilda’s Jake Carlisle from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Carlisle is seeking to win the ball when he is contacted by Fremantle’s Taylin Duman, and goes to ground. As he goes to ground, Carlilse is tackled by Lachie Neale, and is rolled over as part of the tackle. Fyfe is approaching the contest from behind the pair of players on the ground and seeks to slow his pace towards the contest. As he reaches the players on the ground, Carlisle is rolling towards the Fremantle player and contact is made with his knee to Carlisle’s head. It was the view of the Match Review Officer that Fyfe’s action was not careless and was not unreasonable in the circumstances.

Contact between Fremantle’s Nat Fyfe and St Kilda’s Seb Ross from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Ross has taken possession after a boundary throw in. He is preparing to dispose of the ball when Fyfe elects to bump. Contact is made by Fyfe’s shoulder to Ross’ upper chest area. It was the view of the Match Review Officer that the Fremantle player executed the bump with contact to the body and could not have reasonably foreseen a clash of heads between the players. Fyfe’s conduct was not unreasonable in the circumstances and no further action was taken.

The match day report laid against North Melbourne’s Luke McDonald for engaging in rough conduct against Richmond’s Kane Lambert for making forceful contact from front-on during the first quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The ball was soccered up the field by Bachar Houli and is loose as it bounces towards Lambert. McDonald is coming towards Lambert when the ball changes direction.

It was the view of the Match Review Officer that McDonald was seeking to contest the ball and had no realistic alternative way to contest the ball in the circumstances. No further action was taken.

  1. Jack Ziebell cited for kneeing and getting a week – time to feed this Christian to the lions.
    You’re expecting Ziebell to dump Conca un-intentionally?
    Christian is saying that aggression is a no no and destroying the fabric of the game where real men play it.
    Soon clubs will be able to draft touch footballers knowing that they won’t get tackled and therefore potentially hurt.
    Just in case you are wondering – I am really annoyed about this!!

  2. He dropped his entire bodyweight onto Conca’s neck? Was unneccesary and stupid – concussion and head knocks enough of an issue without dickheads thikning they’re in the WWE. The lift and bodyslam wasn’t too bad initially but electing to drop a knee into his head is fucking dumb and deserves the week.

    1. Making contact with the Umpire getting abit overboard ,when your under the pump,adrenaline pumping at a million miles an hour and decisions are not going your way , surely you dont need the Umpire in your face invading your space explaining the bullshit decision he just made .

      1. Im sure its not easy for the players when they are so invested in the game, but the umpires are not emotional or physical punching bags to any degree.
        Like it or not they call the parameters of the game and any (even small) aggression against them is not right.
