AFL Match Review Panel – Round 10 – First goal and report for Karmichael?

The big story of Round 10, 2011 is arguably the Goal from NRL convert, Karmichael Hunt in the Suns Metricon Stadium debut against the league leading Cats. He kicked a beautiful goal from outside 50. So he has ticked that box off his AFL list that says “First Goal”. He may get to tick off the one next to it which says “First report”. In the first quarter he laid a bump that was a little high on young Cat, Nathan Vardy. This one could be touch and go so will wait for the Match Review Panel’s findings.

There was only one match day report and it saw Brett Peake of the Saints reported for striking Dylan Roberton of the Dockers. There may also be a report for making contact with an umpire from the Hawks v Dogs game, but I didn’t see who was invovled and in fact even which team caused the bump.

Did you see any issues that need looking at? Let me know in the comments below.

UPDATES

  • Monday 5pm: Findings are in. See below for details.
  • Tuesday: All players have accepted there medicine. Also I have added in the Video of all the incidents from Round 10.
