Other incidents assessed

Contact between West Coast’s Sam Mitchell and the Geelong Cats’ Joel Selwood from the first quarter of Thursday’s match was assessed. After assessing all available vision, the panel said Mitchell grabbed Selwood from behind and took him to ground. It was the view of the panel the action was not a striking action and there was insufficient high contact to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between Richmond’s Alex Rance and the Sydney Swans’ Lance Franklin from the second quarter of Saturday’s game was assessed. The ball went over the boundary line and the two players came together. Rance pushed Franklin in the upper chest and Franklin pushed the Richmond player back to the upper chest. Rance went to ground and a free kick was paid at the time to the Richmond player. It was the view of the panel, as per the MRP’s guidelines, that any exaggeration of the contact that was made to Rance was not excessive. No further action was taken. 

Contact between Richmond’s Jack Riewoldt and the Sydney Swans’ Luke Parker from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was reviewed. It was the view of the panel there was insufficient force in the contact for a charge to be laid. No further action was taken.

Contact between Carlton’s Dale Thomas and the Gold Coast Suns’ Adam Saad from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was reviewed. The panel said the ball was loose between the players, with the pair coming from opposite directions. Thomas had his hands down to pick up the ball but did not collect it. As the Carlton player over-runs the ball, he turns away from the approaching Saad and contact was made to his opponent. It was the view of the panel that Thomas did not elect to bump and the incident was not reportable in the circumstances. No further action was taken.
