TIO NTFL Match Review Panel: Round 9

AFL Northern Territory (AFLNT) wishes to advise the Match Review Panel has reviewed all matches played in Round 9 of the 2019/20 TIO NTFL season, and the following charges have been laid in the senior divisions:
 
Men’s Premier League
 
Jarrod Stokes, of Darwin Buffaloes Football Club, has been charged with striking player number 26 from the Palmerston Magpies Football Club in the second quarter of the TIO NTFL Men’s Premier League match between Palmerston Magpies and Darwin Buffaloes at Cazaly’s Arena 1 on Friday 29 November 2019.
 
Based on the umpire's report and evidence available (the opposing player had to come off at the start of the last quarter due to pain), it was the view of the Panel that the incident should be classified as intentional conduct, medium impact and contact to the body, resulting in a two-match penalty.
 
In summary, Stokes can accept a one-match penalty as an early plea penalty.
 
Women’s Premier League

Jaylene Boundary, of St Mary’s Football Club, has been charged with misconduct against player number 7 from the Southern Districts Football Club in the fourth quarter of the TIO NTFL Women’s Premier League match between Southern Districts and St Mary’s at TIO Stadium on Saturday 30 November 2019.
 
Based on the video evidence available and the evidence presented (the opposing player was not injured nor did she leave the field), it was the view of the Panel that the incident should be classified as a low-level offence, resulting in a one-match penalty.
 
In summary, Boundary can accept a reprimand as an early plea penalty.

Hayley Davey, of Palmerston Magpies Football Club, has been charged with striking player number 17 from Wanderers Football Club in the fourth quarter of the TIO NTFL Women’s Premier League match between the Palmerston Magpies and Wanderers at Cazalys Arena 1 on Saturday 30 November 2019.
 
Based on the umpire's report and the evidence presented (the opposing player was able to keep playing), it was the view of the Panel that the incident should be classified as intentional conduct, low impact and high contact, resulting in a two-match penalty.
 
In summary, Davey can accept a one-match penalty as an early plea penalty.
