Patrick Dangerfield does not believe he will be suspended for an incident that saw Richmond defender Nick Vlastuin stretchered off the field wearing a neck brace.

Match Review Officer Michael Christian is expected to assess the incident and if found guilty Dangerfield faces a trip to the tribunal.

“I didn’t think there was much in it,” Dangerfield said after the game and reported by Tom Morris from Fox Sports. 

“I was trying to tap the ball away. There were three Richmond players coming towards me. Had it been something there would have been repercussions on the field.

“For everyone it is just play on. It is a contact sport.”

Dangerfield was below his influential best in the Grand Final, finishing the game with 12 disposals and one goal.
