The AFL Match Review Officer failed to enjoy the ANZAC Day public holiday, with Michael Christian working to hand out three separate financial sanctions for incidents across the day's play.

During the nailbiting draw between Essendon and Collingwood at the MCG, Bombers defender Mason Redman was cited by on-field umpires for striking Pies forward Lachie Schultz.

A first-time offender, Redman's strike on the ex-Docker was deemed intentional, low impact and to the body, necessitating a $3,750 fine.

Redman can work the above figure to $2,500 should he enter an early guilty plea.

Later in the evening, Giant Callan Ward and Lion Lachie Neale were respectively cited for striking one another during GWS and Brisbane's lopsided contest in Canberra.

Akin to Redman, Ward's hip pocket is set to be $2,500 lighter, should he enter his own guilty plea, with the fellow first-time offender making intentional, low-impact contact to Neale's body.

The news wasn't as rosy for Neale, with the two-time Brownlow medallist already being hit for his previous strike on Carlton's George Hewett during Opening Round.

With his record working against him, Neale can expect to pay $3,750 for his strike on Ward, or risk paying $6,250 should he argue the toss and lose.
