Geelong midfielder Tom Atkins was one of three players to be charged by the AFL's Match Review Officer from Friday's action, with an Eagles defender and Suns forward also receiving sanctions.

Atkins has been handed a $1500 fine for careless contact with an umpire, a penalty he can have reduced to $1000 with an early plea.

The incident in question occurred during the third quarter of Friday's loss to Richmond at the MCG, and was the only charge to arise from the contest.

Following the defeat the Cats will head to Perth to play Fremantle next Saturday afternoon.

Elsewhere, both stand-in West Coast captain Liam Duggan and Gold Coast forward Mabior Chol have been handed separate charges.

Duggan has avoided suspension for a rough conduct charge involving Suns player Alex Davies from the third quarter of Friday's match at Optus Stadium.

The MRO viewed Duggan's actions as careless conduct, low impact and high contact, resulting in a $3000 fine. Duggan is able to accept a $2000 penalty with an early plea, or can challenge the charge.

Chol has been charged with tripping Eagles midfielder Tim Kelly during his side's dominant win over West Coast, with the offence occurring in the first half of the match.

The MRO have handed Chol a $1500 fine, which can be reduced to $1000 with an early plea.

The Suns will face state rivals Brisbane next Saturday night, while the Eagles will head to Tasmania to play the Hawks.
