NICK Vlastuin will miss Richmond's clash against Gold Coast after the Tigers accepted his one-match ban for striking.

Vlastuin struck West Coast's Connor West in the Tigers' 35-point win at the MCG on Sunday.

It was assessed as intentional conduct and high contact and despite coach Damien Hardwick telling Fox Footy on Monday night the club was likely to challenge, it ultimately accepted the suspension.

He wasn't the only player from that clash cited, with Richmond ruckman Ivan Soldo offered a $2000 fine for tripping Zane Trew and another $1000 fine for wrestling Nic Naitanui.


Naitanui was also offered a $1000 fine for wrestling Soldo.

Hawthorn's Will Day can accept a one-game suspension after being charged with forceful front-on contact on Greater Western Sydney's Josh Kelly.
