Tribunal – Match Review Panel findings from Round 13 (week 1), 2010

Match Review Findings for week 2 available by clicking here

This is the report for the first week of Round 13, 2010 (i.e. the Split round) and although at this stage, from the Matches, there have been no reports, there are at least two big incidents to be looked into in the Blues v Dockers game. Jarrod Waite will have a nervous wait to see if he goes for his hard bump, that appeared high, on Daffield of the Dockers, and Blues skipper, Chris Judd will risk a suspension for elbowing Matthew Pavlich in the head that saw him opened up and need stitches. Both these guys have missed a number of weeks recently and if they get any points this week, more will be added with the amount of loading that they have.

Anyway, shouldn’t be much longer a wait to see if these and other have cases to answer. Say tunned!

UPDATE:

Tuesday midday: No Tribunal this week as everyone accepted that they had been bad boys and will wear there punishments of Weeks, points or dollars!

Monday 6pm: Jake Melksham of the bombers was investigated for an incident that saw Chance Bateman concussed. No reportable offence was detected from the investigation (details here).

Monday 21/06 4:50pm: Okay Blues fans, you want the good news or the bad news? The good news is that Chris Judds incident was deemed as too little impact (details here).
