MRO: Marshall accepts sanction

PORT ADELAIDE forward Todd Marshall is among six players to accept sanctions arising out of the weekend’s JLT Community Series action.

Marshall was charged with engaging in rough conduct on Kangaroos defender Sam Wright during the second quarter of the Power’s 21-point JLT win on Saturday.

The 20-year-old’s actions were assessed to be careless conduct with low impact to the head.

The incident was classified as a $3000 sanction but he was able to accept a $2000 fine with an early plea.

The only player to challenge a sanction out of the weekend is Melbourne defender Steven May who, as it stands, is set to miss the round 1 encounter against the Power.

May is disputing a charged of engaging in rough conduct against Brisbane’s Jarrod Berry in the last quarter of the Demons’ JLT2 loss to the Lions.

Based on the available evidence, the incident was assessed as Careless Conduct with Medium Impact to the Head. 

It is understood the Demons will argue to downgrade the impact of the bump in a bid to reduce the sanction to a reprimand.

May’s case will be heard on Tuesday evening.

Should the challenge fail to be overturned, he will miss the Demons' season-opener against Port Adelaide at the MCG on Saturday 23 March
