Charges Laid:

Max Rooke (GEEL): rough conduct against North Melbourne’s Sam Power: assessed as negligent conduct (one point), high impact (three points) and body contact (one point), equaling five activation points, a Level Three offense, 225 demerits and a two game suspension. His previous record of one game suspended within the past three years increases the penalty 10% to 247.50 demerits, still a two-game suspension. He accepted, reducing the penalty 25% to 185.63 demerits and a one game suspension.

Michael Firrito (NM), making an obscene gesture: fined $1200 for a first offense. He accepted, reducing the fine 25% to $900.

The match day report against Adelaide's Chris Knights for rough conduct against St Kilda's Shane Birss was assessed by the Match Review Panel. The MRP ruled that the contact was caused by circumstances beyond Knights’ control as he was pushed from behind and therefore not at fault. The charge was dismissed.
