Trio to front AFL tribunal

Collingwood’s Nathan Brown and North’s Jack Ziebell have accepted one-match bans while West Coast’s Chris Masten, Fremantle’s Alex Silvagni and Brisbane’s Luke McGuane will front the AFL tribunal hearing later on Tuesday.

The other players charged from round 20 have all accepted sanctions.

Magpie Brown has accepted a one-match ban for engaging in rough conduct against Sydney’s Luke Parker, while Kangaroo Ziebell has taken the same punishment for striking St Kilda’s Jack Newnes.

Port Adelaide’s Jackson Trengove (misconduct) and Justin Westhoff (rough conduct) have both accepted $1000 sanctions from their clash with GWS.

Richmond’s Brett Deledio has also taken a $1000 fine for striking Gold Coast’s Aaron Hall.

In the aftermath to a spiteful western derby, the match review panel referred Masten and Silvagni directly to the hearing, with no options of early pleas.

Eagles onballer Masten will answer a charge of biting Fremantle opponent Nick Suban while Dockers’ backman Silvagni was booked during Sunday’s match for striking Jamie Cripps well away from the ball.

The incident left the West Coast forward with a suspected jaw fracture.

McGuane was offered a $1500 penalty for rough conduct against Carlton utility Kade Simpson but has elected to contest the fine.
