West Coast defender Tom Barrass has been offered a one-game suspension for a dangerous tackle against Fremantle's Michael Walters on Saturday night.

Barrass is seen bringing Walters forcefully to the ground with minimal protection, resulting in the umpire awarding the Docker forward a free kick.

The MRO graded the tackle as careless conduct, medium impact, high contact.

The AFL has been attempting to eliminate these types of tackles so far in 2024, citing Charlie Cameron for a similar action last week against Melbourne.

Despite receiving a one-match suspension, Cameron was free to play following "exceptional and compelling circumstances" found by the Tribunal.

Noting his clean record and 'good bloke' clause, the Lions forward continued his 123 consecutive-game streak when facing the Cats.

GWS captain Toby Greene also avoided MRO trouble for his "dumping tackle" on Gold Coast's Mac Andrew earlier this month.

If the Eagles and Barrass were to be handed down a suspension, they could use the Tribunal loophole that has been found by the Brisbane and Cameron case.

West Coast coach Adam Simpson spoke on the tackle post-game.

“I didn't catch it all. I can't really comment on it,” Simpson said.

“But I hope he gets off.

“He's a good guy.”
