In summary, the player can accept a $1000 sanction with an early plea.
Based on the available evidence, the incident was assessed as Tripping (Fixed Financial Sanction). The incident was classified as a $1500 sanction as a first offence. The player can accept a $1000 sanction with an early plea.
The incident involving Carlton's Lochie O'Brien and Western Bulldogs' Adam Treloar from the second quarter of Thursday night's match between the Western Bulldogs and Carlton was assessed. O'Brien takes possession of the football and is met by player Treloar who attempts to tackle and makes high contact with O'Brien. Whilst there was a level of exaggeration, it was the view of the Match Review Officer that O'Brien's actions were not excessive. No further action was taken.
