Brody Mihocek in action against the Bulldogs

The AFL advises the Match Review of last night’s Round Four Collingwood v Western Bulldogs match at the MCG has been completed. No charges have been laid from the match with one incident requiring detailed explanation.

Incidents assessed:
The match day report laid against Collingwood’s Brody Mihocek for contact on Western Bulldogs’ Tom Liberatore from the second quarter of Friday night’s match was assessed. Mihocek was seeking to spoil when high contact was made with an open hand. A free kick and 50-metre penalty was paid at the time. It was the view of the MRO that the force was insufficient to constitute a charge. No further action was taken.
