A trio of players have been charged by the AFL's Match Review Officer from Sunday's action, with two players from the clash between North Melbourne and St Kilda hit with charges for engaging in a melee/wrestle.

Kangaroo Paul Curtis and Saint Jack Sinclair have both been hit with fixed financial sanctions, valued at $1,500, for their involvement in a melee during the third quarter of the game at Marvel Stadium.

Both players can lodge early guilty pleas and reduce that charge to $1,000 fines.

North Melbourne will face West Coast at Optus Stadium this Sunday, while St Kilda clash with Hawthorn at Marvel Stadium earlier the same day.

Elsewhere, Gold Coast forward Ben Ainsworth has been charged by the MRO for staging.

The fourth quarter incident was assessed by the MRO, who handed down a fixed financial sanction of $1,500 to Ainsworth.

With an early plea, Ainsowrth's fine can be reduced to $1,000.

The Suns are scheduled to face Brisbane this week at Heritage Bank Stadium.

The charges follow a handful of sanctions from Round 19, which included a two-game ban for Port Adelaide forward Willie Rioli.

Rioli and the Power have decided to challenge the charge at the AFL Tribunal.
