Lindsay Thomas could be in trouble with the Match Review Panel after a high hit on Rhys Palmer in North Melbourne affiliate Werribee’s game against Northern Blues in the VFL today.
Thomas collected the ball in Werribee’s forward line and went to fend off Northern Blues’ Palmer, but got him high with his elbow.
Watch the incident here:
Today is Thomas’s return match after serving a lengthy VFL suspension for an ugly hit on Casey’s Corey Maynard in early May.
Another suspension would be a significant setback for Thomas, who has struggled to crack North’s senior team this season.
Werribee lead the Blues 9.6 (60) to 9.5 (59) after clawing back a 28 point deficit.
