The MRP has laid two charges from Friday night’s clash between St Kilda and Essendon at Etihad Stadium.

Saints veteran Nathan Brown has been referred directly to the tribunal for his late bump on Bombers speedster Adam Saad.

Brown’s hit was deemed intentional with high impact and high conduct and no early plea available.
