Former Cat, Blue join Match Review Panel

AFL 2016 Rd 20 - Geelong v Essendon
Jimmy Bartel has joined the Match Review Panel

GEELONG champion Jimmy Bartel and former Carlton defender Michael Jamison have joined the AFL's Match Review Panel for the remainder of this season.

The pair will add to a panel already brimming with football experience, with ex-players Michael Christian, Nathan Burke and Jason Johnson continuing in their roles.

Former Richmond and Adelaide forward Chris Knights has stepped away from his position on the MRP due to work commitments, meaning the panel has effectively grown by one member due to the new appointments.

Bartel retired last year after a distinguished career for the Cats, including three premierships. He was also named the Norm Smith medallist in 2011 and crowned the Brownlow Medallist in 2007.

Jamison's career also came to a close at the end of 2016 after 150 games stationed in Carlton's defence.
