Essendon's Mason Redman has accepted his charge for striking Hawthorn's Jai Newcombe, while Hawks captain James Sicily will challenge a suspension for kicking an opponent, with the AFL's Match Review Officer handing down nine charges from Saturday's action.

The incident involving Redman occurred during the second quarter of the clash at the MCG between the Bombers and Hawks, with Redman's actions gaining the attention of the MRO.

Among the list of charges from Round 1, Redman's hit on Newcombe was deemed as intentional conduct, high contact and low impact, resulting in a one-game suspension.

Redman and Essendon have chosen not to challenge the verdict, meaning he will miss this week's game against Sydney. Redman is next available to play in Round 3 when the Bombers face St Kilda.

Sicily has been charged with kicking Bomber Andrew McGrath during the first term of Saturday's match. The MRO graded his actions as intentional conduct, medium impact and body contact.

The Hawks have since confirmed they will challenge the charge at the AFL Tribunal. The club could look to lower the level of impact from 'medium' to 'low', which would mean Sicily receives a fine instead of a suspension.

If the Tribunal can be convinced Sicily's actions were 'careless' instead of 'intentional' then that too would see the Hawthorn captain free to play in Round 2.

An upheld charge would mean Sicily's one-game ban stands and that he would miss his side's Round 2 clash with Melbourne.

Bomber Todd Goldstein (striking) and Newcombe (forceful front-on contact, second offence) can accept fines of $2500 and $3,750 respectively.

Gold Coast's Malcolm Rosas has accepted a one-game suspension for headbutting/making contact using the head on Adelaide's Max Michalanney during the second quarter of Saturday night's match in Queensland.

The one-game ban means Rosas is unavailable to face the Western Bulldogs this week.

Suns teammate Connor Budarick has also been charged with engaging in a melee and can accept a $1,250 fine.

GWS pair Jack Buckley (tripping) and Harry Perryman (striking) can both accept fines of $1,250 and $1,875 respectively.

Elsewhere, Geelong's Jhye Clark can accept a $2,500 fine for a dangerous tackle on Saint Jack Steele.
