Other Incidents:

Contact between Carlton’s Patrick Cripps and the Gold Coast Suns’ David Swallow from the first quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Swallow attempts to take possession of the ball. Cripps comes to the side of Swallow and wraps his right arm around the Suns’ player’s body and tries to knock the ball with his left hand. The momentum of both players sees them go to ground. In the motion of going to ground both players put their hands down to protect their fall. It was the view of the Match Review Officer that this did not constitute as a dangerous tackle and Cripps’ actions, were not unreasonable in the circumstances. No further action was taken.

  1. Worst effort by the MRP so far!
    Zac Jones belts someone – fined.
    Charlie Curnow belts someone – one week.
    May runs past the ball and puts the shoulder into an opponents head – one week.
    There’s just no way that makes sense to any sensible person.
