SYDNEY'S Julie O'Sullivan has been handed a one match ban by the Match Review Officer for a rough conduct offence.

O'Sullivan's attack on Adelaide's Anne Hatchard was judged as careless, medium impact and high contact, drawing the one-game penalty.

The suspension will see the defender miss the the Swans' first game next season after they were bundled out of finals by Adelaide on Saturday night.
