Star Tiger Tom Lynch has landed himself in hot water for an incident in Tuesday night’s win against Brisbane.

After tackling Lions defender Aled Witherden in the first quarter, Lynch preceded to aggressively push his face into the ground.

The incident is expected to come under scrutiny by the Match Review Officer – with a potential fine or suspension looming.

Fox Sports’ Tom Morris believes the act justifies a one-match ban.

The Tigers, who climbed into third place after last night’s win, face Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval this Saturday at 4.35pm AEST.
