The only other penalty from that game sees Gold Coast's Sam Day offered a 1 match ban for striking Melbourne's Neville Jetta.

The Showdown between Port Adelaide and the Crows saw Sam Powell-Pepper and Matt Crouch offered financial sanctions. 

Powell-Pepper has been offered two seperate fines amounting to $2500 for misconduct and wrestling against Crounch. 

Crouch can accept a $1500 fine for his part in wrestling with Powell-Pepper. 


These sanctions were handed down today due to Port Adelaide and Gold Coast having to travel to play in China next week and need to know the outcomes as early as possible.
