MRO Michael Christian has revealed all his findings

The AFL advises the Match Review of last night’s Preliminary Final match between Richmond and the Geelong Cats has now been completed. No charges have been laid from the match with one incident requiring detailed explanation.
 
Incident assessed:
Contact between Richmond’s Bachar Houli and Geelong Cats’ Gryan Miers from the third quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. Houli is leading into space when Miers moves to lay a block. Houli seeks to evade Miers and in the process of fending off his opponent, Houli makes high contact. It was the view of the MRO there was insufficient forceful high contact to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
