Round 22 MRP results

Adelaide’s Rory Sloane will miss the final match of the season after being hit with a one game ban for engaging in rough conduct on Port Adelaide’s Brad Ebert.

The suspension also dashes Sloane’s Brownlow Medal hopes, with the onballer enjoying a career best season, currently averaging 25.5 disposals per game.

Sydney’s Heath Grundy was the only other player to be sanctioned, as he was fined $1,000 for engaging in rough conduct on Lindsay Thomas.

Meanwhile, Hawthorn’s Jordan Lewis was cleared for his hit on Scott Lycett, with the force used deemed to be insufficient to warrant a report.

Fremantle’s Michael Apeness was also cleared for his contact on Giants’ veteran Heath Shaw.

    • Lycett should have been given a week for getting his head in the way of a Hawthorn players fist. Should have been a free kick to Hawthorn at the very least.

  1. The crows won’t take this lying down the afl is a joke if they expect full punches too the head to be ok what do they call a spoiling attempt gone wrong. Bullshit is what it is . The crows will lose a lot of respect if they don’t challenge this. 😎😎

  2. I don’t think this is right and I’m a Port supporter. These things are always happening, what’s a player supposed to do? Not defend! The MRP is a bloody joke, not only in this decision but others every week as well.

  3. someone compare the Hawkins suspension to the Lewis clearance and tell me the legitimate difference.
    Seriously, the consistent Hawthorn bias coming out of the MRP is laughable

  4. Why does every team carry some yellow and brown spray paint and if someone does something wrong quickly paint yellow and brown stripes on ya jumper. You should be ok then . Sick of the mrp

  5. The MRP is a disgrace. People jumper punch each other with more force than that and that action is intended, with no reprimand, yet accidental contact from possibly the leagues fairest player and he gets rubbed out? Sloane plays hard and fair, a lot like dangerfield. If you are punishing those who go for the ball hard, you may as well make it a non contact sport.
