North Melbourne's Nick Larkey can accept a fine for tripping Melbourne defender Michael Hibberd in Sunday's game at Blundstone Arena.

On Monday evening, the AFL's Match Review Officer handed down just the one charge from Sunday's action in Round 21, with Larkey the only player to be listed on the MRO's charges sheet.

A fourth-quarter incident between Larkey and Hibberd has seen the Roos forward handed a $3000 fine, which can be reduced to $2000 with an early plea.

The MRO viewed Larkey's actions as intentional conduct, low impact and body contact, resulting in a financial sanction rather than a suspension.

North Melbourne and Larkey are able to contest the charge with the AFL Tribunal through a written submission.

The Tribunal is already in line to hear cases from GWS forward Toby Bedford (rough conduct, one-game suspension) and West Coast ruckman Bailey Williams (rough conduct, one-game suspension) on Tuesday evening.

Able to play in Round 22, Larkey is in line to face Essendon on Saturday at Marvel Stadium.
