Conor McKenna Tory Dickson

Essendon’s Conor McKenna will miss the next three weeks after being found guilty of biting Western Bulldogs forward Tory Dickson during Sunday’s clash at Etihad Stadium.

McKenna was tackled by Dickson on the wing before the pair wrestled with each other, and the Irishman was found to have bitten his opponent in the skirmish.

McKenna will now miss Essendon’s upcoming matches against Port Adelaide, Collingwood, and Melbourne.
