Sydney’s Lance Franklin has been cleared by Match Review Officer Michael Christian, after Christian determined Franklin was trying to evade a tackle, and his actions “were not unreasonable in the circumstances.”

Melbourne’s Bernie Vince was cleared by Christian, after he decided Vince’s actions were careless, but the force wasn’t strong enough to require a charge to be laid.

Brisbane’s Dayne Zorko, St Kilda’s Jack Newnes, and Carlton’s Lochie O’Brien can all accept $2000 sanctions for separate incidents over the weekend.
