Peter Ladhams will be anxiously awaiting the MRO findings due to come in on Sunday evening after a fiery encounter against his former side.

As the Swans attempted to stem a run of Port goals in the third term, the former Power player turned Swan gave away a 50-metre penalty in an incident with Ollie Wines, where Ladhams appeared to gut-punch the Brownlow Medallist.

The incident came just minutes after Ladhams gave away an off the ball free kick, resulting in a power goal from Sam Powell-Pepper.

The 24-year-old will certainly come under MRO scrutiny, but has also found himself on the receiving end of criticism from fellow former Port player Kane Cornes.

“You don’t see players dragged very often, do you?” Cornes said on Nine’s Sunday Footy Show.

“There was a reason (Port Adelaide) were happy to trade him while he was still in contract.

“There was some thought around about the character of Peter Ladhams and that was one of the reasons they let him go.

“To see him do that against his former side, I think they would’ve been pretty justified that they did let him go.”

Ladhams was traded (along with pick 16) in 2021 after three years at the club, with Port Adelaide receiving pick 12 (Josh Sinn) and a future third-round pick in exchange.

Speaking during the coverage on Fox Footy, commentator Jordan Lewis said that Ladhams' action was worthy of at least a week on the sidelines.

“That is just a brain explosion,” Lweis said.

"It’s what you can’t allow to happen,

“One, you’re fighting the crowd, you’re fighting the momentum in the game at the moment and yet you give away two really silly free kicks that have ended up directly in opposition goals.

“He’ll probably spend another week on the sidelines as well. The tackle gets performed, that’s all that needs to happen but then you see the swinging of the right arm."
