Collingwood midfielder Travis Varcoe can accept a one-game suspension for engaging in rough conduct against the Bulldogs’ Luke Dahlhaus.

Varcoe was cited for laying a head-high hip-and-shoulder on the premiership forward and could now miss the Magpies’ blockbuster clash with Richmond on Thursday night.


Melbourne could also be without Bernie Vince against Carlton on Sunday at the MCG after the playmaker was offered a one-game ban for striking St Kilda’s Nathan Wright.

Port Adelaide onballer Hamish Hartlett can accept a $1500 fine for striking Sydney’s Jordan Foote and Carlton forward Levi Casboult has been offered a $1000 for engaging in rough conduct against Richmond’s Nick Vlastuin.

Meanwhile, Fremantle duo Michael Walters and Cam McCarthy were cited for engaging in a melee with Geelong defender Zach Tuohy. All three can accept $1500 fines.

Richmond defender Alex Rance was cleared of making head-high contact with Carlton’s Matthew Wright. The MRP said Rance was close to stationary and the high contact was incidental.

And West Coast big man Jeremy McGovern has been cleared of contact he made with North Melbourne forward Jarrad Waite. The MRP said McGovern had his arm down to reach for ball and he was contesting ball when contact made.
