Round 22 MRP results

Adelaide’s Rory Sloane will miss the final match of the season after being hit with a one game ban for engaging in rough conduct on Port Adelaide’s Brad Ebert.

The suspension also dashes Sloane’s Brownlow Medal hopes, with the onballer enjoying a career best season, currently averaging 25.5 disposals per game.

Sydney’s Heath Grundy was the only other player to be sanctioned, as he was fined $1,000 for engaging in rough conduct on Lindsay Thomas.

Meanwhile, Hawthorn’s Jordan Lewis was cleared for his hit on Scott Lycett, with the force used deemed to be insufficient to warrant a report.

Fremantle’s Michael Apeness was also cleared for his contact on Giants’ veteran Heath Shaw.
