AFL Match Review Panel – Round 5 – No time for Talk

Hi guys, Due to the round into a round I am not going to do analysis as, lets face it, there is another game/round starting tomorrow. Don’t forget to comeback to get all the updates on the Match Review Panel/Tribunal for the week.

UPDATE

  • Tuesday: First 6 games Match Review Panel findings are in. There could still be a few more reports from todays game but there is plenty of time for those as both the Cats and Hawks have the bye this week.
  • Wednesday 10:30pm: First 6 games see no tribunal hearing. Bock and Jackson have accepted there penalties. Will get the results from the Match Review Panel on the Hawks v Cats games with the Cats sweating on Scarlett and Kelly (someone mentioned Ottens) and the Hawks on Mitchell.
  • Wednesday 3:30pm: MRP findings from the Cats v Hawks game, and it is no surprise to the Hawks fans that the Hawks got pinged and the Cats got off. Big F#$king surprise! 😉

—————————————————————-

Charges Laid:

Sam Mitchell, Hawthorn, has been charged with a Level One engaging in rough conduct offence against Steve Johnson, Geelong Cats, during the first quarter of the Round Five match between Hawthorn and the Geelong Cats, played at the MCG on Tuesday April 26, 2011.

In summary, he can accept a reprimand and 93.75 points towards his future record with an early plea.

 

The incident was assessed as negligent conduct (one point), low impact (one point) and high contact (two points). This is a total of four activation points, resulting in a classification of a Level One offence, drawing 125 demerit points and a one-match sanction. He has no existing good or bad record. An early plea reduces the sanction by 25 per cent to 93.75 points and a reprimand.

Liam Shiels, Hawthorn, has been charged with a first offence for making negligent contact with an umpire (Troy Pannell) during the third quarter of the Round Five match between Hawthorn and the Geelong Cats, played at the MCG on Tuesday April 26, 2011.

In summary, he can accept a $900 sanction with an early plea.

A first offence for making negligent contact with an umpire is a $1200 sanction. An early plea reduces the penalty by 25 per cent to a $900 sanction.

 

 

Other Incidents Assessed:

Contact between the Geelong Cats’ James Kelly and Hawthorn’s Grant Birchall from the first quarter of Tuesday’s match was assessed. Birchall was running to the ball after a centre bounce while Kelly was coming to the ball from the opposite direction. Kelly had his eyes on the ball and was pushed from behind by Hawthorn’s Sam Mitchell, just before he reaches the contest with player Birchall. It was the view of the panel that contact was caused by circumstances outside of player Kelly’s control and the panel said that Kelly’s action was viewed as a protective action for himself, and not a bumping action on player Birchall. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Geelong Cats’ Matthew Scarlett and Hawthorn’s Jordan Lewis from the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s match was assessed. Scarlett comes in to spoil a marking attempt by player Lewis. Scarlett spoils the ball and also makes high contact to Lewis as he punches the ball. It was the view of the panel that Scarlett’s actions were a legitimate spoiling action and the high contact was accidental. No further action was taken.

 

Sanctions Accepted:

Nathan Bock, Gold Coast Suns, has accepted a one-match sanction for engaging in rough conduct against Jackson Trengove, Port Adelaide, during the fourth quarter of the Round Five match between the Gold Coast Suns and Port Adelaide, played at Etihad Stadium on Saturday April 23, 2011.
Daniel Jackson, Richmond, has accepted a one-match sanction for striking Scott Thompson, North Melbourne, during the fourth quarter of the Round Five match between Richmond and North Melbourne, played at Etihad Stadium on Sunday April 24, 201.

Charges Laid:

Nathan Bock, Gold Coast Suns, has been charged with a Level Two engaging in rough conduct offence against Jackson Trengove, Port Adelaide, during the fourth quarter of the Round Five match between the Gold Coast Suns and Port Adelaide, played at Etihad Stadium on Saturday April 23, 2011.

In summary he can accept a one-match sanction with an early plea.

The incident was assessed as negligent conduct (one point), medium impact (two points) and high contact (two points). This is a total of five activation points, resulting in a classification of a Level Two offence, drawing 225 demerit points and a two-match sanction. He has no existing good or bad record. An early plea reduces the sanction by 25 per cent to 168.75 points and a one-match sanction.

Daniel Jackson, Richmond, has been charged with a Level Two striking offence against Scott Thompson, North Melbourne, during the fourth quarter of the Round Five match between Richmond and North Melbourne, played at Etihad Stadium on Sunday April 24, 2011

In summary, his previous poor record means that his one-game sanction must remain at one-game, even with an early plea.

The incident was assessed as reckless conduct (two points), low impact (one point) and high contact (two points). This is a total of five activation points, resulting in a classification of a Level Two offence, drawing 125 demerit points and a one-match sanction. He has an existing bad record of five matches suspended within the last three years, increasing the penalty by 50 per cent to 187.50 points. He also has 41.88 demerit points carried over from within the last 12 months, increasing the penalty to 229.38 points and a two-match sanction. An early plea reduces the sanction by 25 per cent to 172.04 points and a one-match sanction.

Other Incidents Assessed:

The match day report against the Western Bulldogs’ Ben Hudson for engaging in rough conduct against Fremantle’s Chris Mayne from the first quarter of Monday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel that the force was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

The match day report against the Western Bulldog’s Jordan Roughead for engaging in rough conduct against Fremantle’s Luke McPharlin from the third quarter of Monday’s match was assessed. The panel said the ball was kicked into the Bulldogs’ forward line to the leading Roughead, who jumped into the air in an attempt to mark. As Roughead jumped to contest the ball, he was pushed from behind by Fremantle’s Antoni Grover, as the defensive player, while McPharlin came across in front of Roughead to intercept the ball. The panel said that Roughead had his eyes on the ball at all times, until the moment of inevitable contact, and the panel did not view his actions as unnecessary or unreasonable in the circumstances. No further action was taken.

Contact between St Kilda’s Nick Dal Santo and the Brisbane Lions’ Cheynee Stiller from the second quarter of Thursday’s match was assessed. Stiller had possession of the ball and was preparing to kick into the forward line for his team. Dal Santo came in from the side and made contact with a bump as Stiller was kicking the ball. Contact was made to the upper arm and to the head / neck area of the Brisbane player. When Stiller goes to ground, side-on vision shows him to be watching the path of his kick, and he then returns to his feet to continue in the game. A medical report stated that he was not treated at the time for any injury, and that he was not treated after the game for any injury. It was the view of the panel that the contact was below the force required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Gold Coast Suns’ Danny Stanley and Port Adelaide’s Matthew Broadbent from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Broadbent had disposed of the ball when he is bumped to the side by Stanley. It was the view of the panel that the bump was not unreasonable in the circumstances. No further action was taken.

Contact between Richmond’s Jake King and North Melbourne’s Daniel Pratt from the fourth quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. Pratt was bending to gather the ball when King comes in to contest possession. King has his eyes on the ball at all times and had no other realistic alternative manner to contest the ball. No further action was taken.
