Match Review Officer Michael Christian has cleared Luke Parker of any wrongdoing after he was reported on Friday night for a bump on Hawthorn’s Jarman Impey.

Christian said Parker has no other alternative, and was just contesting the ball.

“Impey approaches Cunningham who is being tackled by Henderson,” Christian’s statement regarding the Parker ruling began.

“Cunningham handballs through Impey’s legs in Parker’s direction, Impey turns around to take possession of the ball, while Parker simultaneously turns sides on and lowers his body to take possession of the ball.

“Impey taps the ball away from Parker’s outstretched hands between his legs, and high contact is made between Impey and Parker. It was the view of the MRO that Parker was contesting the ball and had no realistic alternative way to contest the ball.”

The incident happened in the fourth quarter, with Impey needed to leave the field following the collision with a blood rule.

Sydney duo Gary Rohan and Jarrad McVeigh were also cleared for separate incidents on Friday night.
