Other incidents assessed:

The match day report laid against Essendon’s David Hille for engaging in rough conduct against Hawthorn’s Clinton Young from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The panel said that Young had taken a mark as Hille was coming in to contest the ball. Hille turned his body to protect himself when it was apparent that Young would get to the ball first. It was the view of the panel that Hille had slowed to minimise the contact and reduce the impact. It was their view that no charge should be laid as the force was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between Essendon’s Dustin Fletcher and Hawthorn’s Xavier Ellis from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The panel said Ellis had disposed of the ball and was contacted by Fletcher with a bump. Fletcher made contact to the chest and shoulder area of Ellis, as shown by one of the camera angles that was provided to the panel. No contact was made to the head and no further action was taken.

Contact between Richmond’s Daniel Jackson and the Geelong Cats’ Steve Johnson from the first quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. Due to the inconclusive nature of the video evidence, no further action was taken.

Contact between Richmond’s Dean Polo and the Geelong Cats Paul Chapman from the second quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel that Polo vigorously pushed Chapman, but it was not considered to be a striking motion. No further action was taken.
