Eagle Tunbridge takes three-week AFL ban

West Coast rookie Simon Tunbridge has accepted a three-match AFL ban after being charged twice for separate incidents in their one-point round 21 win over Greater Western Sydney.

Tunbridge was given a one-week ban for striking GWS defender Adam Kennedy and a two-match ban for engaging in rough conduct on the same player.

He will miss West Coast’s crucial next two games against Hawthorn and Adelaide, as well as the first week of the AFL finals.

North Melbourne veteran Brent Harvey is free to play the Sydney Swans in Saturday’s crunch game at Blundstone Arena after accepting a $1000 fine for rough conduct.

Harvey collected Hawthorn star Sam Mitchell high with a swinging right arm in Saturday’s clash at the MCG.

The same game saw Luke Hodge also fined $1000 for wrestling with North defender Michael Firrito, who himself received a fine of $1500.

Carlton players Lachie Plowman and Sam Docherty were fined for their part in a melee against the Brisbane Lions.

The Lions had three players accept $1000 fines for engaging in the same incident, Rhys Mathieson, Eric Hipwood and Ben Keays.
