Full statement

The AFL wishes to advise the Match Review Panel has reviewed the matches played in Round 20. The following charges were laid:
Jarryd Roughead, Hawthorn, has been charged with a level one tripping offence for tripping Dom Tyson, Melbourne, during the second quarter of the Round 20 match between Hawthorn and Melbourne, played at the MCG on Saturday August 9, 2014.
In summary, due to his previous poor record, his penalty of a reprimand is increased to a one-match sanction, even with an early plea.
Based on the video evidence available and a medical report from the Melbourne Football Club, the incident was assessed as reckless conduct (two points), low impact (one point) and body contact (one point). This is a total of four activation points, resulting in a classification of a Level One Offence, drawing 80 demerit points and a reprimand. He has an existing bad record of 64.06 demerit points carried over from within the last 12 months, increasing the penalty to 144.06 points and a one-match sanction. An early plea reduces the sanction by 25 per cent to 108.05 points and a one-match sanction.
Other incidents assessed:
Contact between the Geelong Cats’ Steve Johnson and Fremantle’s Lachie Neale from the first quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel the force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
Contact between Fremantle’s Nathan Fyfe and the Geelong Cats’ Andrew Mackie from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Mackie was attempting to take possession of the ball after a handpass from teammate George Horlin-Smith and was not able to take the ball cleanly. As the Geelong player was bending down to pick up the loose ball, Fyfe was coming towards him to make a contest. Mackie fumbled the ball as Fyfe was coming in and bent forward to collect the ball and the Fremantle player made high contact, with a free kick paid for the infringement. It was the view of the panel that Fyfe had no realistic alternative way to contest the ball and the high contact was caused by circumstances outside the player’s control. No further action was taken.
Contact between the Geelong Cats’ Travis Varcoe and Fremantle’s Nick Suban, as well as contact between Suban and Varcoe, from the third quarter for Saturday’s match was assessed. In each instance, it was the view of the panel the force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence.
Contact between the Brisbane Lions’ Justin Clarke and the Adelaide Crows’ Tom Lynch from the second quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The ball was loose in the Adelaide forward line with Lynch and Clarke coming to the ball from opposite directions. Lynch picks up the ball and has possession when Clarke attempts to tackle. The Adelaide player initially raises his body after taking possession and then alters his position, just before the tackle is laid. It was the view of the player that Clarke had no realistic alternative way to approach the contest and the high contact was caused by circumstances outside the player’s control. No further action was required.
