Update:

Jack Viney (Melbourne) has his club’s full support as Melbourne appeals the two match ban Viney received for rough conduct against Tom Lynch (Adelaide).

The Match Review Panel initially assessed the charge as engaging in rough conduct, however many people within the AFL community believe the contact was not deliberate and it couldn’t have been averted.

The Tribunal will announce its decision following a hearing to be held on Thursday night.

Other players who received penalties:

Luke McGuane (Brisbane Lions) – has received a one match ban and 125 demerit points for striking Jeremy Laidler (Sydney).

The Match Review Panel assessed the charge as level two striking.

The initial penalty may be reduced to a reprimand and 93.75 demerit points with an early plea.
