Melbourne’s Colin Sylvia will miss the last two matches of the year after being given a two week suspension for striking Tiger Jayden Post in Sunday’s spitful match at the MCG.
Sylvia was back in form scoring 135 points in the Demons loss, but due to his poor record he is unable to reduce his sentence with an early guilty plea.
The Demons may also be without Aaron Davey who was given a two week ban for elbowing Mitch Morton, but he can reduce his sentance to one week with an early plea.
Essendon’s Heath Hocking may also miss a week for his sling tackle on West Coast start Daniel Kerr. His sentence cannot be reduced due to his previous record.
Eagle Beau Waters was cleared for his high contact with Bombers captain Jobe Watson on Sunday afternoon. The contact was deemed as accidental from by the match review panel so Waters is free to play against the Brisbane Lions this week.
