Culley's swinging right elbow collected Anderson high shortly after the Suns midfielder disposed of the ball in the second quarter of Gold Coast's three-point win.
It was of the view of the Match Review Officer that Culley's actions should be graded as Intentional Conduct, Medium Impact and High Contact, resulting in the two-game ban.
