Gibbs banned for two weeks, as five players charged by MRP

The Match Review Panel has laid down the law to Bryce Gibbs.

Carlton midfielder Bryce Gibbs has been offered a two match suspension for his slam tackle on Robbie Gray, that forced the Port star to be taken from the field in a neck brace. Gibbs has been charged with rough conduct by the MRP, with the contact being deemed as careless and head high, resulting in a three week ban. However, Gibbs can accept a two game ban with an early guilty plea.
