The incident is the third-such striking controversy involving Ablett this year, after he was forced to visit the AFL Tribunal earlier in the season after being handed the first suspension of his 18-year career.

Geelong star Gary Ablett and Fremantle skipper Nat Fyfe are still in contention for this year's Brownlow Medal after avoiding suspension for a pair of high hits . Fyfe was also in hot water after a high hit on Richmond's Tom Lynch in the Tigers' 25-point win at Optus Stadium on Sunday.

However, despite the terrible optics of the incident, Ablett maintained that he had nothing to worry about in terms of his availability for the Cats’ Round 11 clash against Sydney next week.

“I think it seems to get billed up every week,” Ablett told Fox Footy.

“Obviously it was a bit clumsy there and I gave a free kick away, but it was a bit undisciplined.”

Fox Footy commentator and former Swans premiership coach Paul Roos also agreed that Ablett may get away without a suspension due to the fact that Miles was able to run out the remainder of the match.

“I think he’ll be fine next week,” Roos said.

“Based on what we’ve seen … what we know with (Match Review Officer) Michael Christian is that he does take into consideration very heavily the match report.”

Sydney v Collingwood: Young Pies defender faces potential Buddy nightmare Collingwood defender Jack Madgen probably has mixed memories of his senior debut. The 26-year-old was thrown in the deep end when he was forced to line up on Sydney superstar Lance Franklin in their round 20 clash at the SCG last season. Buddy already had his tail up on the night, having booted three goals before his opponent, Darcy Moore, was ruled out of the second half with injury. Madgen got the job on Franklin who outclassed the debutant, helping himself to three more goals as the Swans escaped with a two-point, come-from-behind win.

The incident put an unfortunate dampener on yet another outstanding performance from Ablett who has turned in somewhat of a vintage season up forward for the Cats.

The 34-year-old finished with 20 disposals and kicked two excellent goals in traffic as the Cats pulled away from a gallant young Suns side.

Tim Kelly was once again the best on ground for Geelong, finishing with 35 disposals, five marks and four tackles.

Veteran forward Tom Hawkins also continued his excellent season and finished with four goals and 13 disposals, while midfield star Mitch Duncan added 27 disposals and three goals.

The loss also came at a major cost for Stuart Dew’s men after young forward Ben Ainsworth was seen on crutches after suffering an ankle injury in the first quarter.

Ainsworth was among the Suns’ best prior to the injury but was eventually iced up in the third quarter and did not return for the remainder of the contest.

The loss sees Geelong maintain its position at the top of the AFL ladder, four points ahead of Collingwood, while despite their positive signs, the Suns are now 17th on the ladder, but still eight points clear of bottom-placed Carlton.
