Giants’ Davis banned, Cameron fined

Greater Western Sydney skipper Phil Davis has been offered a one-match ban by the AFL match review panel, but teammate Jeremy Cameron has escaped with a fine.

Davis was charged with engaging in rough conduct against Adelaide defender Luke Brown in the last quarter of the Giants’ win against the Crows.

The MRP assessed the incident as careless conduct with medium impact to the head, with Davis risking a two-match ban if he takes the case to the tribunal and loses.

Cameron was charged with making forceful contact from front on against Adelaide’s Kyle Cheney, but can accept a $1000 fine with an early plea.

West Coast midfielder Elliot Yeo and Western Bulldogs utility Brett Goodes are the other players to receive suspensions from round eight action.

Yeo was charged with striking St Kilda’s Jimmy Webster in the second quarter of the Eagles’ win at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

The young Saint left the field with blood streaming from his nose after an attempted spoil by Yeo.

He also risks a two-match suspension if he’s unsuccessful at the tribunal.

Goodes was charged with engaging in rough conduct against Melbourne’s Matt Jones and can accept a one-match penalty with an early plea.

The 31-year-old already faces a period on the sidelines after breaking his arm in the Dogs’ loss to the Demons.

Hawthorn trio Sam Mitchell, Jordan Lewis and Liam Shiels and Sydney’s Lewis Jetta and Kieren Jack can all accept fines for their part in a melee in a fiery opening term of the big clash at the MCG that the Swans went on to win.

Essendon’s Joe Daniher kicked a career-best six goals in the Bombers’ win over Brisbane, but he was also charged with striking Allen Christensen after a misguided spoiling attempt that also cost him a 50m penalty.

He can accept a $1500 fine for a second offence.

North Melbourne ruckman Todd Goldstein can take a $1000 fine for striking Fremantle’s Hayden Ballantyne and Richmond’s Dylan Grimes was fined $1000 for making contact with an injured player in Port Adelaide’s Jackson Trengove.
