St Kilda ruckman Paddy Ryder has been suspended for two games after being charged with engaging in rough conduct on Hawks defender Will Day.

Ryder collided with Day in the third quarter of Sunday's match between the Saints and Hawks at the MCG, with the latter subbed out of the game with concussion as a result of the bump.

The Match Review Officer has deemed the incident in question as Careless Conduct, High Impact and High Contact, with Ryder able to accept the ban with an early guilty plea.

The suspension will see Ryder miss his side's Round 5 clash with Gold Coast at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and his side's Rund 6 bout with Greater Western Sydney.

The MRO also charged Crow Josh Rachele (Striking, $2000), Bomber Darcy Parish (Tripping, $2000), Sun Ben Ainsworth (Wrestling, $1000 with early plea), Blue Nic Newman (Wrestling, $1000 with early plea) and Coleman Medal winner Harry McKay (Staging, $1000 with early plea) from Sunday's action.

Meanwhile, Melbourne forward Ben Brown has been handed a two-game ban for striking during Casey's Round 3 win over Williamstown in the VFL.

After missing the Demons' past two games after being required to follow the AFL's health and safety protocols, Brown was available to feature in his side's reserves game over the weekend.

His return to Simon Goodwin's side will be delayed however, with the premiership spearhead charged after making high contact with Seagulls player Max Philpot in the final quarter of the match.

The incident was graded as intentional conduct, low impact and high contact by the VFL match review, according to 

Brown will be able to reduce the suspension to a one-game ban with an early guilty plea.

The Demons are scheduled to face the Greater Western Sydney in Round 5 before their ANZAC Day Eve clash with Richmond the following Sunday night.
