TUESDAY: Fremantle's Luke McPharlin will contest the charge laid against him by the Match Review Panel while all other players have accepted their sanctions.

Pavlich is now ineligible to win the Brownlow Medal as a result of his reprimand for whacking Mitch Brown.

MONDAY: Fremantle's Luke McPharlin and Hawthorn's Liam Shiels can accept one-match bans for incidents stemming from the weekend but their high-profile team-mates Matthew Pavlich (Dockers) and Brent Guerra (Hawks) will be clear to play in Round 20.

McPharlin will likely miss Freo's clash with Adelaide for his hit on Jack Darling while Shiels faces a suspension for striking Allen Christensen.

Docker Matt De Boer has been reprimanded for tripping West Coast's Daniel Kerr and North's Brent Harvey has been offered a $1,950 fine for pushing Bulldog Robert Murphy into the path of an umpire.

But the Dockers will be pleased Pavlich has been offered a reprimand for striking Mitch Brown given the Freo captain's amazing form of late.

St Kilda's Tom Simkin has also been offered a reprimand after bumping Sharrod Wellingham, front-on.

Guerra was cleared for his bump on Paul Chapman from Friday night's thriller between the Hawks and Cats. The Match Review Panel said the contact was 'incidental' and the action was not a 'bumping motion'.

Other players cleared of wrongdoing were Justin Koschitzke, Stephen Milne and Lewis Roberts-Thomson.
