During the second quarter of Saturday's matchup between the Power and Eagles, young West Coast midfielder Jai Culley disposed of the ball in his forward half before Jonas crashed into him with some force, with both players left hampered on the ground.
While Jonas was able to get to his feet soon after, Culley was helped up by club medical staff and assisted off the field before undergoing a head injury assessment.
The collision saw Jonas brace for contact as Culley kicked the ball, with Jonas' head clashing with his opponent's. Available angles of the incident do not show Jonas' shoulder making contact with Culley's head.
Jonas may still gain some level of scrutiny from the MRO for the incident however.
Is Tom Jonas in trouble for this hit on Jai Culley late in the second term?

While likely to be graded as careless conduct and high contact if seen as a reportable offence, the MRO's view on the level of impact could range between medium, high or severe.
Having passed his HIA and not required to undergo concussion protocols, the level of impact is likely to be set closer to medium.
An impact grading of medium will result in a one-game ban, while a high impact grading will see Jonas handed a two-game suspension.
