Tribunal – Match Review Panel findings from Round 18, 2010

So no reports out of the games in round 18 but another wait on the Match Review Panel findings. If Bruce was writing this, he might say its a “Delicious” wait as the man most of interest you would have to say is the Hawks Cyril Rioli. Something happened that upset the Hawks small forward and he went crazy swinging arms at Ports Nick Salter. For those that haven’t seen it, here it is:

The main hope for us Hawks supporters is that a) the MRP can’t find a punch that landed b) his good record will help reduce any charges c) that the incident is counted as one offence. On the latter one, Saints fans might consider this surprising after the Steve Baker incident against Geelong, but my understanding in that incident it was very separate incidents. Even saying that, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is two or more charges against Cyril. The problem will be the MRP splitting them out and showing each incident is separate.

UPDATE:

Tuesday 12:20pm: So as predicted, the Hawks will challenge the attempting striking charge. This was a no brainer. Worst case senerio is they get an additional 20pts. Best case is they reduce the suspension by a week.

Monday 5:40pm: As I finish writing this, the MRP decision is in. Two separate charges, one of striking for 2 weeks (1 + 168 points with early plea) and one of attempting to strike for 80 points (60 with an early plea) meaning if he didn’t contest either charge, he would accept a 2 match penalty. Wouldn’t be surprised if he challenged one of the charges as even being found guilty would leave him at under 300 points an a 2 week penalty. Here is the full findings:
