Karmichael Hunt will miss this weeks clash with West Coast after accepting a one-match ban for a bump on Geelong’s Nathan Vardy in the opening minutes of Saturday night’s game on the Gold Coast.

The bump was classified as a Level Two offence, drawing 250 demerit points and a two-match ban. Due to Hunt’s good record an early plea reduced the sanction by 25 per cent to 187.50 points and a one-match ban.

North Melbourne defender Michael Firrito has also accepted his one week ban for a rough conduct charge on Swan Ryan O’Keefe.

The incident involving Firrito resulted in a classification of a Level One offence, drawing 125 demerit points and a one-match sanction. He has an existing bad record of 93.75 points carried over from within the last 12 months, increasing the penalty to 218.75 points and a two-match sanction. An early plea reduced the penalty by 25 per cent to 164.06 points and a one-match sanction.

St Kilda’s Brett Peak accepted a reprimand and 70.31 points for striking Fremantle’s Dylan Roberton.

Collingwood duo Luke Ball and Cameron Wood each accepted a reprimand for their charges of tripping and rough conduct.

Adelaide’s Rory Sloane and Melbourne’s Colin Sylvia accepted their fines of $900 for making negligent contact with an umpire.
