Fremantle’s Hayden Ballantyne has accepted a one-match suspension for striking from the AFL match review panel.
Fremantle forward Hayden Ballantyne and Gold Coast utility Tom Murphy have each accepted one-match suspensions from the AFL match review panel.
Ballantyne has been banned for striking Greater Western Sydney’s Thomas Bugg, while Murphy has accepted a one-game sanction for kneeing Western Bulldog Jake Stringer.
Ballantyne will miss the Dockers’ away fixture against St Kilda on Saturday and Murphy will be suspended for the Suns’ July 26 encounter with Brisbane.
The duo were among six players to accept proposed penalties from the match review panel, meaning the tribunal won’t sit this week.
Port Adelaide veteran Kane Cornes took a reprimand for striking Richmond’s Daniel Jackson, clearing him to play against Melbourne this Sunday.
Gold Coast utility Greg Broughton and Bulldog Nathan Hrovat both accepted a $900 fine for wrestling each other during last Saturday’s match.
And Richmond captain Trent Cotchin also accepted a $900 fine, for making negligent contact with umpire Luke Farmer in last Sunday’s win against Port.
