Brisbane skipper cops fine for whack on Magpie

Highlights: Brisbane v Collingwood The Lions and Magpies clash in round five

BRISBANE's Dayne Zorko has escaped with a $2000 fine for an incident involving Collingwood's Taylor Adams in the match between the teams at the Gabba on Thursday night.

Zorko was charged with engaging in rough conduct against Adams in the first quarter of the clash, but Match Review Officer Michael Christian determined the financial sanction was adequate.

The incident was assessed as careless conduct with low impact and high contact.

Vision shows Zorko appearing to make contact with Adams' head or neck just after he handballs to teammate Brody Mihocek on the wing.

The incident was classified as a $3000 sanction as a first offence, however Zorko can accept a $2000 sanction with an early plea.
