Charges Laid:
Justin Koschitzke (STK), rough conduct against Swan Nick Malceski: assessed as reckless conduct (two points), medium impact (two points) and high contact (two points), equaling six activation points and a Level 3 offense, 325 demerits, and a three-game suspension. His record of three games suspended in the past three years increases the penalty 30% to 422.50 demerits and a four game suspension. He also has 53.52 demerits held over from the past year, increasing the penalty to 476.02 demerits, still a four game suspension. He accepted, reducing the penalty 25% to 357.02 demerits and a three game suspension with 57.02 demerits held over toward his future record.

Brendon Goddard (STK) was fined $1200 for a first offense of negligent contact with an umpire.He accepted, reducing the fine 25% to $900.

The match day report laid against Essendon’s David Hille for charging Geelong's Jimmy Bartel was dismissed by the Match Review Panel. It was the opinion of the panel that Hille's contact was legitimate as he had eyes for the ball in the marking contest which was created when Bartel moved to intercept a kick from Hille's teammate Jobe Watson. The panel further ruled that Hille turned to brace himself for the contact with Bartel, which was made to Bartel's body and shoulder.
