Match Review Panel Findings

AFL Match Review Panel – Round 15, 2012 – Welling-Slam, Tale of two bumps

Regular readers/followers of the AFLSpace would know that this article normally comes out on a Monday morning to preview what the Match Review Panels findings may be from the weekends games. But a mixture of waking up way to early on a Sunday morning, the prospect of a busy start to the week and two juicy incidents to look at mean that I decided to take the time this morning to write up the story of the two big bumps from the weekend so far (if there are others I will add them tonight or tomorrow).

The first incident involved a Sharrod Wellingham charge on Kade Simpson of the Blues in Friday nights match. Simpson was going for the mark and Wellingham appears to relise that he is going to get to the contest late and takes his eyes off the ball and instead charges into Simpson. The sicking blow left Simpson in a bad way on the ground and forced him out of the game and Carlton have already reported that Simpsons jaw is broken. Here is the incidient:

Due to (from what I can find or not find in my research) Sharrod’s good record, he could possibly go for as little as 2 to 3 weeks depending on the categories that the Match Review Panel (MRP) put on the incidents. It will definitely be considered High Contact. Whether it is reckless or intentional is questionable. Perhaps the fact that he takes his eyes off the ball to look at the player will go against him. Also the question of if a broken jaw is high impact or Severe will be interesting. If it was determined as High impact and Reckless, that would see 7 activation points, level 4 offense, 425pts back to 319/3 weeks with an early plea. I don’t believe that Wellingham is in line for a further 25% for 5 year good record but if he is that would come back to 2 weeks. If one of those two categories was 1 shade worse (i.e. it was either considered intentional or severe impact) but not both, that would take it to level 5 offense, 550pts, 412 with an early plea and 4 weeks. If it was considered to be both severe impact and intentional, the MRP would have to send this straight to the tribunal. So Sharrod has a nervous wait ahead of him, especially when his coach already has admitted that he “will go”.

The other guy with a nervous wait for Monday afternoon, is Heath Hocking of the Bombers. Hocking laid a behind the play bump on Lenny Hayes of the Saints in their Saturday night match that forced Hayes off the field but appears no where as bad as the Wellingham bump but dues to Hocking’s bad record, it could leave him out for as long or longer! Here is the incident:


Hocking has missed 4 matches in the last few years form suspension and so cares a 40% loading on any base points that he gets. He also has 81pts left over from his last case. Also hurting him in this incident is the rule brought in at the start of the year that any behind the play incident is automatically classified as intentional. While some fans maybe questioning if the hit was high, I am not sure the MRP will so I am going to analyse this case assuming that it will be High contact and Intentional. What is the impact though and what effect does that have on the charge? If it isn’t considered to come to low impact, then there will be no case to answer, but the fact Hayes was forced from the field means it is unlikely to escape a penalty. I don’t think that it will be considered High Impact so lets look at what happens in the case of Low or Medium impact.

Low impact would mean 6 activation points and level 3. It would mean 325pts + 130 (because of his 40% loading) + 81 (carry over points). That would come to 536pts/5weeks. If he choose to accept this, he would get his 25% discount bringing it back to 402pts or4 weeks.

Medium impact would mean 7 activation points and Level 4. It would mean 425pts + 170pts + 81pts. That comes to 676pts and 6 weeks. If he cops the guilty plea, it would come down to 507 or 5 weeks.

So as you can see, both players are looking at serious time on the side lines. Hocking most likely the worst of it but mainly because of his bad record and virtual 1 match suspended sentence that he has over his head.

How many weeks do you think each guy will get?

Don’t forget to check back over the course of the start of the week as I keep you updated on all the tribunal/MRP news!

UPDATES

  • Mon 11am: Have updated below with the match day reports. Wellingham we knew about. Kosi also listed but didn’t see that one. Cameron I saw and think there is a fair chance there wasn’t enough force to sustain that one.
  • Mon 3:45pm: Full Match Review Panel details are in. Hocking luck to get 2. Wellingham did get the 5 year bonus and so will only miss 3. Jeremy Cameron a repremand, but if he accepts he can’t win the NAB rising star award. Quinten Lynch of the Eagles a week, James Bartel of the Cats 2 weeks, Luke Shuey 2 weeks, Matt White of the Tigers (for 2 incidents) 3 weeks. Did I miss any one? If so, details below.
  • Mon 4pm: In what must be a world record performance, Wellingham has accepted his 3 week penalty!

The match day report against St Kilda’s Justin Koschitzke for engaging in rough conduct against Essendon’s Courtenay Dempsey from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Dempsey is on the ground and has possession of the ball. As he handballs the ball away, Koschitzke comes towards and makes contact. A free kick was paid at the time and, after speaking to the umpire, it was the view of the panel there was no signficant head/neck contact and the force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between Collingwood’s Steele Sidebottom and Carlton’s Brock McLean from the second quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. McLean has the ball and is tackled by Sidebottom and taken to the ground. As the Collingwood player takes his opponent to the ground, he did not drive McLean into the ground with excessive force. No further action was taken.

  1. barbara mccormack says:

    I was horrified to see the in my opinion deliberate attack on kade simpson, if wellingham does not get at least 4 – 5 weeks suspension then the afl is not providing duty of care to its players. it could have resulted in serious permanent injury.
