Ablett was involved in a scuffle with Suns midfielder Anthony Miles late in the third quarter and connected to Miles’ head with a closed fist in the Cats’ 13. 13. (91) to 9. 10. (64) win at Metricon Stadium.

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 v Western Bulldogs: Out-of-bounds rule update catches out fans and commentators

Geelong v Western Bulldogs: Out-of-bounds rule update catches out fans and commentators This one's for the rule nerds. Most astute footy watchers will know that, following a behind, a kick-in that goes out of bounds without being touched by a player from either team results in a free kick. Or at least it did. What the commentators and plenty of viewers during the Bulldogs' Saturday evening visit to the Cattery didn't realise, is that rule has been removed from the laws of the game. Here's the old rule: 15.7.

Geelong star Gary Ablett is set to face nervous wait during the week once again after a high hit in the Cats’ hard-fought win over the Gold Coast Suns. Ablett was involved in a scuffle with Suns midfielder Anthony Miles late in the third quarter and connected to Miles’ head with a closed fist in the Cats’ 13.

Gary Ablett Jr. (born 14 May 1984) is a professional Australian rules footballer playing for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).

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.”

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.

Ablett punch 'a clear-cut case of a lack of discipline'.
But coach Chris Scott is confident the champion Cat has learnt his lesson, and the club could have a handy replacement for him this week in Patrick Dangerfield.
