Carlton defensive duo Lewis Young and Liam Stocker have both been offered one-week bans by the MRO for their respective bumps on North Melbourne pair Tarryn Thomas and Cam Zurhaar.
Stocker laid a massive hit on Thomas toward the end of the third quarter which saw him subbed out of the game with a shoulder injury that is expected to see him miss some time. Given that it's unlikely the Blues will challenge the sanction.
The bump did cause an accidental head knock between the pair but Thomas got up and played out the rest of the game. The incident was graded as "Careless Conduct, Medium Impact and High Contact."
Young laid a bump while stationary on Zurhaar who charged into the Carlton defender. The former Bulldogs didn't get Zurhaar high but has also been offered a one-game ban. Young's charge of "Forceful Front-On-Contact" was graded as "Careless Conduct, High Impact, Body Contact."
In the aftermath of a fiery clash under the roof at Marvel Stadium, Kangaroos forward Nick Larkey has been offered a one-week ban of his own after he tunnelled Young under the ball whilst play had stopped in a rather cynical act.
Jason Horne-Francis and Jack Ziebell have also been sanctioned by the MRO with the 2021 number one draft pick being fined $2000 for striking Jack Silvagni. Meanwhile, Ziebell has been offered a $1500 fine for tripping Adam Saad.
