Collingwood's Scott Pendlebury has been charged with striking by the AFL's Match Review Officer, who handed down just the one charge from Thursday's grand final rematch between the Magpies and Lions.

Pendlebury's third-quarter hit on Brisbane's Lachie Neale has been graded as intentional conduct, body contact and low impact, meaning the 36-year-old has avoided a suspension for the strike.

The Magpies veteran can accept a $2500 fine with an early guilty plea, or risk a $3750 fine if he chooses to challenge the decision and fails to have the charge dismissed.

The financial sanction will mean Pendlebury is free to face Hawthorn next Sunday at Adelaide Oval for Gather Round.

The MRO cited no other player from Thursday's game at the Gabba.
