Collingwood's Brayden Maynard has avoided any charge by the Match Review Officer for his hit on Justin McInerney from Saturday's preliminary final, while Swans forward Tom Papley can accept a $1000 fine for careless contact with an umpire.
Papley's charge occurred in the opening quarter of his side's one-point win over the Magpies, with the penalty resulting in a $1500 financial sanction.
With an early guilty plea, Papley can see the fine reduced to $1000, with the level of contact not graded high enough to warrant a suspension.
The MRO's charge sheet did not include Maynard's first-quarter incident with McInerney, with the Magpies defender seen making contact with the young Swan off the ball.
Is Brayden Maynard in any trouble for this? 🤔

Having both avoided suspensions, Papley will be free to play in Saturday's Grand Final, while Maynard will be free to begin next season.
