AFL Northern Territory (AFLNT) wishes to advise the Match Review Panel (MRP) has reviewed all matches played in Round 1 of the 2020/21 TIO NTFL season, and the following charge has been laid in the senior divisions:

Men’s Division 1

Mishai Perry of the Palmerston Magpies Football Club has been charged with striking player number 15 from Waratah Football Club in the third quarter of the TIO NTFL Men’s Division 1 match between Waratah and Palmerston Magpies at Gardens Oval on Sunday 4 October 2020.

Based on the evidence available, it was the view of the MRP that the incident should be classified as careless conduct, low impact and high contact, resulting in a two-match penalty.

In summary, Perry can accept a one-match penalty with an early guilty plea.

*UPDATED Tuesday 6 October evening*

The Tribunal will not sit after Mishai Perry accepted his early guilty plea. 

Dismissed report

The umpire's report recorded against Patrick Heenan of the Tiwi Bombers for striking in the Round 1 Men's Premier League game against the Darwin Buffaloes was dismissed by the MRP.
