Paul Chapman (GEEL), striking Bulldog Liam Picken: assessed as intentional conduct (three points), low impact (one point), and body contact (one point), equaling five activation points, a Level Two offense, 125 demerits, and a one game suspension. He accepted, reducing the penalty 25% to 93.75 demerits and a reprimand with the demerits held over toward his future record.

Liam Picken (WB), striking Geelong's Joel Selwood: assessed as intentional conduct (three points), low impact (one point), and body contact (one point), equaling five activation points, a Level Two offense, 125 demerits, and a one game suspension. He accepted, reducing the penalty 25% to 93.75 demerits and a reprimand with the demerits held over toward his future record.

Koby Stevens (WCE), bumping or making forceful contact from front-on against Port Adelaide's Danny Myer: assessed as negligent conduct (one point), low impact (one point), and high contact (two points), equaling four activation points, a Level One offense, 125 demerits, and a one game suspension. He accepted, reducing the penalty 25% to 93.75 demerits and a reprimand with the demerits held over toward his future record.

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

A first offense for making negligent contact with an umpire is a $1200 sanction. An early plea reduces the sanction by 25 per cent to a $900 sanction.

The Match Review Panel assessed the match day report against Fremantle's Zac Clarke for rough conduct against Sydney's Ben McGlynn. The MRP ruled that contact was made as a result of McGlynn lunging as both players came in to attempt to gain possession of the ball. As a result, Clarke's leg made contact with McGlynn's face, resulting in a fractured cheekbone to McGlynn. The MRP deemed that Clarke was attempting to gain possession of the ball and that his actions were not reportable. They therefore dismissed the charge.

The match day report against St Kilda’s Jason Gram for making forceful contact from front-on against North Melbourne’s Cruize Garlett was assessed. The MRP ruled that the force was below the requirements for a charge and dismissed the report.
