Graham Johncock (ADE), rough conduct against Port Adelaide's Cameron Hitchcock: assessed as reckless conduct (two points), medium impact (two points), and high contact (two points), equaling six activation points, a Level Three offense, 325 demerits, and a three game suspension.

The match day report against Brisbane's Brent Staker for striking Geelong's Darren Milburn was assessed by the MRP. The panel ruled that Staker's initial contact during an attempted tackle was to Milburn's back and his hand was open at all times. They therefore ruled that it was not a striking motion and dismissed the charge.

The match day report against Carlton’s Jarrad Waite for rough conduct against West Coast’s Adam Selwood was assessed by the MRP. The panel ruled that Waite had bumped Selwood as he was kicking the ball and that contact was made to Selwood's shoulder. They further ruled that Waite's action was not reportable and dismissed the charge.
