The AFL has revealed the Match Review Officer (MRO) findings from Saturday's clash between Sydney and Essendon, headed by Peter Wright's collision with Harry Cunningham.

Wright's contest was deemed "high contact, severe impact and careless conduct" and has been referred directly to the tribunal.

The Bomber forward is looking at a lengthy suspension, which could result in missing over a month of football, according to Channel 7's Mitch Cleary.

Essendon are likely to challenge the suspension, with a few examples acting as precedence that could work in favour of Wright.

In 2023, the Tribunal threw out controversial incidents such as Tom Lynch on Alex Keath as well as Brayden Maynard on Angus Brayshaw, with the pair dividing the AFL community.

The Bombers could argue that the collision was a football act.

Cunningham was subsequently stretchered off the field and was concussed, meaning he'll enter a mandatory 12-day protocol and miss Round 3's game.

Throughout the fiery encounter, there were five other players reprimanded for their actions.

Sam Draper was sanctioned $3,750 (early plea of $2,500); Tom McCartin $3,125 ($1,875); Jye Caldwell $1,875 ($1,250); Justin McInerney $1,875 ($1,250); Nick Blakey $1,875 ($1,250).

Brownlow Medal fancy Isaac Heeney was lucky to escape a suspension and is still in contention for the prestigious award.

The hearing is likely to take place on Tuesday evening.

St Kilda and Max King will also be included on the docket, with the club appealing his one-match ban for his bump on Collingwood's Finlay Macae.
