during the round 19 AFL match between the Western Bulldogs and the Essendon Bombers at Etihad Stadium on July 30, 2017 in Melbourne, Australia.

Western Bulldogs forward Tory Dickson has claimed Essendon defender Conor McKenna bit him during an incident on the wing during Sunday’s game at Etihad Stadium, according to The Age.

Dickson chased down McKenna and tackled him in the second quarter, before the pair engaged in a tussle after the free kick was paid.

It was in that moment that Dickson said the Bomber bit him.

The Bulldogs forward went to the bench immediately and complained about the incident.

McKenna is likely to be cited by the tribunal for the bite.
