Lindsay Thomas – Werribee
AFL Victoria’s Match Review Panel charged player Thomas for striking Northern Blues player Rhys Palmer during the second quarter of the VFL Round 9 match, Northern Blues vs Werribee Tigers on Saturday 17th June, 2017 at IKON Park.
Based on the available video and medical report, the incident was assessed as careless conduct with low impact and high contact. The incident was classified as a one match base sanction. Due to player Thomas having a bad record, the base sanction has been upgraded by one match, therefore being offered a two match base sanction, with the option of accepting an early guilty plea of a one match sanction.
Outcome – accepted one match sanction.
