A dozen Fremantle and West Coast players have been fined more than $20,000 combined following a brutal western derby clash on Saturday.
Eagles forward Liam Ryan copped the biggest punishment, a $3000 fine for striking Dockers speedster Brandon Walker in the first quarter of the Optus Stadium clash.
The incident was deemed intentional, low impact and body contact by the AFL’s Match Review Officer Michael Christian.
Ryan was also fined $1500 for his role in the first term melee that momentarily stopped play.
Fremantle star Andrew Brayshaw, who was heavily tagged by West Coast’s Jackson Nelson, was among six Dockers fined $1500 but remains eligible for the Brownlow Medal. Nelson was also fined.
West Coast midfielder Jack Redden and Fremantle star Caleb Serong, who had his shirt torn open in the scuffle, were also fined $1,500.
Eagles defenders Liam Duggan and Tom Barrass all copped a $1,500 fine for their part in the melee, while Jamaine Jones was fined $2,500 as a second offense.
Rory Lobb, Heath Chapman, Brennan Cox and Walker rounded out the Dockers hit with $1500 sanctions.
Ryan can accept a $2,000 and $1,000 fine, respectively, with an early plea, while Jones can accept a $1,500 sanction. The remaining 10 players fined can all accept $1000 fines with an early plea.
Meanwhile, Western Bulldogs premiership player Zaine Cordy was referred directly to the court for his bump on Greater Western Sydney young gun Tanner Bruhn.
The incident, which appeared to be a bump to the body and shoulder of the young GWS player but left him concussed, was ungraded meaning it will be up to the court to determine whether Cordy faces any punishment.
