AFL Match Review Panel – Round 17 – Shaw there must be incidents?

I have to say, that I can’t think of too many incidents talked about over the course of Round 17. It has too be said that I didn’t catch all the games or the panel shows so there could be 100 incidents that I missed but there were no in game reports on the weekend so will have to wait to hear of any issues that I missed. Having a look at the message boards, there is a query been asked of Eric Mackenzie’s bump on Gwilt but I am not sure it was an issue and although the guy went off the ground and will most likely miss the rest of the year, it wasn’t from a head high hit.

Of course talking suspension, we should mention that Heath Shaw will miss the rest of the Home and Away season after he was caught betting on the Pies round 9 game. He gave money to a mate to put on Nick Maxwell for the first goal after learning that Nick would start up forward. He was handed a 14 week suspension but had 6 of those games on hold for the next couple of years. It was silly by Heath but the AFL had to act!

UPDATE:

  • Waiting for the Match Review Panel findings.
  • Monday 5pm: Charges are in. No suspensions offered.
  • Tuesday 10:30am: Added video to the post.
  • Tuesday midday: All players accepted their penalties and there will be no tribunal this week.

Other Incidents Assessed:

Contact between Essendon’s Alwyn Davey and the Adelaide Crows’ Matthew Jaensch from the first quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. The panel said that Davey sought to engage Jaensch for body contact in the lead-up to a marking contest. Jaensch jumps earlier than expected as Davey moves to protect his space under the ball and contact is made while Jaensch is in the air. It was the view of the panel that Davey’s action was not a deliberate attempt to run underneath his opponent, while he was in the air. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Gold Coast Suns’ Danny Stanley and Richmond’s Will Thursfield from the first quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Stanley and Thursfield are both contesting a loose ball when contact was made. Stanley had his eyes on the ball at all times and it was the view of the panel that the Gold Coast player had no realistic alternative way to contest the ball. No further action was taken.

Contact between West Coast’s Josh Kennedy and Fremantle’s Brett Peake from the third quarter of Saturday’s game was assessed. West Coast’s Nic Naitanui takes possession of the ball from a stoppage and begins running towards the West Coast goal. Peake is chasing him in an attempt to tackle when Kennedy shepherds the St Kilda player. It was the view of the panel that contact was made to the body and there was no forceful high contact. No further action was taken.

Contact between Port Adelaide’s Hamish Hartlett and Melbourne’s Dan Nicholson from the second quarter of Saturday’s game was assessed. A medical report from the Melbourne Football Club said that player Nicholson was not treated for any injury and was able to play out the match. Contact was determined to be below the force required to sustain a report. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Sydney Swans’ Rhyce Shaw and Fremantle’s Tendai Mzungu from the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game was assessed. Player Shaw has gone to ground while chasing a loose ball on the wing area. As he attempts to take possession, he makes contact with the Fremantle player, tripping him. It was the view of the panel that Shaw’s actions were a realistic attempt to contest the ball and that the trip was accidental. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Geelong Cats’ James Podsiadly and the Brisbane Lions’ Matt Maguire from the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game was assessed. Contact was made to the shoulder/arm area and was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
