AFL Match Review Panel – Round 9 – I’ll drink to that!

Have heard a great deal of talk about potential incidents for the Match Tribunal to investigate but I am sure some will come out over the course of the day. There was one in game report when Jason Blake, recalled for this weeks game, was reported for Striking Clint Bartram of the Demons at the end of the second quarter (if you let this run, you will see the incident and Malee). There was a bit of a malee in that game and there could be fines coming out of it.

In things the video might look at, there are some that are pointing to a Tackle by Robert Murphy of the Dogs on Nicoski of the Eagles (see it here). There are elements of the tackle that are like the Jack Trengove tackle that same him miss three weeks, but there might be enough uncertainty with the extra dog coming in and the thought that him falling played into the issue. Also, it is questionable if Murphy drove him in. Time will tell, as normal.

The last incident I am going to bring up is actually out of the SANFL. Adelaide spearhead, Taylor Walker is likely to face their tribunal process for a late charging incident in his match on the weekend. Not happy with this making news, he then was photographed with mates drinking at another match. This has started a media hunt for the guy, so it will be interesting to see if the tribunal rub him out.

As normal, I will update the post over the course of the week with any further tribunal issues. Did you see any? Comment below if you have!

UPDATE:

  • Monday 7pm: Incidents are in and video of incidents are available below.
  • Tuesday: Everyone accepted there penalties. No tribunal hearings this week. Gives us more time to work out what to do with Sandilands in DreamTeam/SuperCoach! Sure it will be a fair discussion on the Coaches Box AFL DreamTeam/SuperCoach podcast this week!

Other Incidents Assessed:

The match day report against St Kilda’s Jason Blake for striking Melbourne’s Clint Bartram was assessed. The panel said that based on a medical report from the Melbourne Football Club, and the available video evidence, the force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Geelong Cats’ Corey Enright and Carlton’s Matthew Warnock from the fourth quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. Enright has his eyes on the ball at all times in a bid to spoil the Carlton player. As he jumps in his attempt to spoil the marking contest, his arm is held by Carlton’s Chris Judd. In all the circumstances, it was the view of the panel that Enright’s action was a legitimate spoiling action and no further action was taken.

Contact between the Geelong Cats’ Matthew Scarlett and Carlton’s Jarrad Waite from the fourth quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. Based on a medical report from the Carlton Football Club, and the available video evidence, the force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between Melbourne’s Clint Bartram and St Kilda’s Nick Winmar from the fourth quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The panel said Winmar had taken possession of the ball and was moving quickly toward the boundary when Bartram tackled the St Kilda player. The Melbourne player takes Winmar to the ground with the momentum of his tackle in a continuous motion. It was the view of the panel that the force used was not unreasonable in the circumstances. Winmar was not slung to the ground with excessive force. No further action was taken.

Contact between Port Adelaide’s Matt Thomas and Fremantle’s Garrick Ibbotson from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Based on a medical report from the Fremantle Football Club, in which player Ibbotson was not treated for any injury, and the available vision, the panel was not satisfied there was any forceful high contact to player Ibbotson. No further action was taken.

Contact between Hawthorn’s Jarryd Roughead and the Sydney Swans’ Nick Malceski from the first quarter of Sunday’s game was assessed. The force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
