Lion Mitch Robinson cops one-match AFL ban

Justin Chadwick |

Brisbane hard-nut Mitch Robinson has been slapped with a one-match AFL ban for his front-on bump on Port Adelaide’s Xavier Duursma.

Duursma was bent over collecting the ball when Robinson came from the opposite direction to lay a bump.

The incident was assessed as careless conduct, medium impact and high contact, drawing a one-match ban.

Duursma was injured in the incident, and appears set to miss a sizeable chunk of football depending on the results of scans. 

Essendon’s Sam Draper was slapped with a $2000 fine for his roundhouse to the mid-riff of Geelong’s Esava Ratugolea.
