Mark Stevens has given his verdict on the incidents that will be looked at by the MRP leading up the the Grand Final.

He believes all players will be cleared to play next week despite a number of big names being involved in incidents during the Preliminary Finals. 



Rory Sloane: Cleared

A clash with Patrick Dangerfield.

"Look i think this is just two bulls going at it.. it's just a footy collision." 

Taylor Walker: Cleared

Raised elbow on Andrew Mackie.

"Clips him across the jaw, I'm saying no trouble, probably insufficient force."

Brandon Ellis: Fined

High hit on Lachie Whitfield.

Does get Lachie Whitfield high, I've got him in trouble. the good news is that the trouble could be a fine...I think he's going to get fined for that."

Trent Cotchin: Cleared 

High contact on Dylan Shiel who received delayed concussion. 

"He's just going hard at the footy here... my take on that is that it's a non-reportable offence."
