PORT Adelaide's Sam Powell-Pepper will head to the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday night to challenge his one-game ban.

The Power confirmed on Monday morning they would appeal Powell-Pepper's suspension for a dangerous tackle on Hawthorn's Ben McEvoy on Saturday. 


He was deemed to have engaged in rough conduct by Match Review Officer Michael Christian, with the tackle graded as careless conduct, medium impact and high contact. 

McEvoy played out the game following in the incident in the final term.

Richmond's Tom Lynch also has been forced to front the Tribunal after his third striking charge of the season, this time on Essendon's Michael Hurley on Saturday night. 

The specific findings of the strike on Hurley weren't released by the MRO but it follows Lynch's previous striking charges on Suns Jarrod Witts and Sam Collins in round 12. 

While there is no rule that states three charges results in a player being directly sent to the Tribunal, Christian has the option to under the 'three and subsequent' clause and acted on it when coming to his findings on Sunday.
