ADELAIDE forward Josh Rachele has been charged with umpire contact but has escaped suspension for an incident during the fourth quarter of Thursday night's Showdown.

Rachele was slapped with a fine after the Match Review Officer charged him with careless contact with an umpire.

The 21-year-old has been fined $1,875 ($1,250 with an early plea) following the Crows' 30-point win over the Power.
