Bailey Smith could also be in hot water after the Western Bulldogs star headbutted Geelong player Zach Tuohy during a hot-tempered Friday night clash within the AFL.
The Doggies young gun squared as much as Tuohy during a heated altercation at the top of the third term, with the Geelong star appearing to motion his head forwards without making contact.
Smith then lost his cool and threw his head in Tuohy’s direction while holding his jumper and made contact along with his rival.

The Western Bulldogs suffered a brain fade as he threw his head on the Geelong Cats star
Tuohy immediately recoiled and touched his head as Geelong stars got here riding to the rescue for his or her team-mate with tensions spilling over.
The Geelong star was seen sporting a red mark on his brow and Smith was immediately placed on report for the incident.
Garry Lyon said on Fox Sports: ‘It’s so out of character for a young man who’s the very best profile player within the competition for the time being.’

Jonathan Brown added: ‘Absolute brain slap, the old Liverpool kiss. Costly because he was improbable in that quarter. What are the AFL going to say about that? They said Buddy Franklin’s act was cowardly, what are they going to call that?
‘Gut feel is it isn’t an ideal search for the sport. They will not be pleased about it. I feel the AFL would love [to give Smith] greater than every week.’
Tuohy was quick to dismiss the incident after the sport and revealed that he patched things up with Smith at the ultimate siren.
‘Emotions were obviously getting the higher of each of us, I used to be pulling and dragging at him as much he was me, so there wasn’t much in it,’ the Irishman said. ‘It was all love at the top.’
Jeremy Cameron kicked six goals because the Cats secured a giant win over their top eight rivals
Jeremy Cameron was the difference in a contest when goals were hard to come back by, slotting three and organising one other within the opening quarter to permit the Cats to storm out to a 33-point lead at the primary break.
After going quiet, like his team in the course of the second and third terms, Cameron got here alive again in the ultimate quarter besides one other three goals to complete with six.
The nine-time GWS leading goalkicker, who arrived at Geelong ahead of the 2021 season, passed 500 profession goals in the course of the first quarter.
Geelong’s crucial win – their eighth of the season – over one other finals contender allows them to move into the bye right in top-four contention.
