Port Adelaide's Zak Butters has been charged for two separate incidents from Saturday's Qualifying Final loss to Brisbane but will be free to play in this week's clash with GWS after the AFL's Match Review Officer handed down two charges from week one of the 2023 finals series.
Butters' first-quarter bump on Lion Dayne Zorko was graded as intentional conduct, body contact and low impact by the MRO, leading to a $2,000 fine with an early plea for rough conduct.
The Port Adelaide star was also charged with striking for a fourth-quarter incident that also involved Zorko, which was graded intentional conduct, body contact and low impact.
That charge has seen Butters hit with another $2,000 sanction with an early plea.
Dayne Zorko went down after this incident with Zak Butters in the first term. How did you see it?

Butters will be available for the Power's semi-final against GWS on Saturday night at Adelaide Oval.
The pair of offences against Butters were the only charges cited by the MRO from Saturday's action.
Those charges conclude a busy weekend for the MRO, who referred Collingwood Brayden. Maynard directly to the Tribunal for a rough conduct charge warranting a minimum three-game suspension.
Melbourne's Jacob van Rooyen was suspended for one game for rough conduct on Collingwood's Dan McStay in Thursday's loss to the Magpies and may also head to the Tribunal, pending a decision from Melbourne.
