AFL Round 17 – Essendon Vs Collingwood

I figured that this game would be Ok as we had smashed the Bombers in the Anzac day clash and we would be able to finish them off. Oh how wrong i was. the baby bombers jumped them at the start and we never really recovered. every time we lifted the intesity, they lifted it higher. In the end, it was just another loss in a game we should have won and no doubt the coaching team had pecilled in a win..

Reports:

It was the view of the panel the contact was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
l Alan Didak (Col) reported by field umpire Matthew Head for striking Henry Slattery (Ess) in Q3. The match day report was assessed.
It was the view of the panel that Didak made high contact with Slattery but contact was with a pushing motion, and not a strike. The impact was below that required to constitute a report. No further action was taken.
l Leon Davis (Col) reported for front-on contact to Jobe Watson (Ess) in Q2. The match day report was assessed.
It was the view of the panel the contact was not forceful. Contact was caused by circumstances outside player Davis’ control in that he was pushed from behind. No further action was taken.
