The MRO offered an explanation for his decision to not charge Mitch Duncan following an assessment of an incident.
“The incident involving Mitch Duncan and Robbie Fox from the third quarter of Saturday night’s match was assessed,” an MRO statement read.
“Geelong Cats’ Isaac Smith handballs towards Duncan who tracks the loose ball at speed. Fox approaches from the opposite direction and attempts to knock the ball forward. In doing so, Fox runs past the ball and lowers his body position before contact is made with Duncan.
“It is the view of the MRO that Duncan’s actions were not unreasonable in the circumstances. No further action was taken.”
