The ban will effectively be a five-match break for Thomas due to a bye for Werribee in the VFL during that time.
VFL | Corey Maynard has been sidelined after sustaining a heavy knock against Werribee on Sunday.

Maynard was stretchered from the field following the incident, which was deemed as careless conduct with severe impact and high contact.
In the same match, Melbourne’s Jake Melksham was offered a one-match ban for two separate incidents.
The VFL suspension carries over into the AFL, meaning Thomas won’t be eligible for senior selection until he has served his ban.
