The incident between Geelong's Tom Hawkins and Melbourne's Clayton Oliver from the third quarter of Saturday's game between the Geelong Cats and Melbourne played at GMHBA Stadium was assessed. Oliver has possession of ball in Melbourne’s defensive 50 and, as he is disposing of the football, Hawkins applies a tackle from behind. It was the view of the MRO there was insufficient forceful high contact to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
