Zorko avoids sanction over alleged spitting incident© Twitter Zorko was charged with Misconduct after appearing to pinch Simpkin's leg in the third quarter Brisbane Lions captain Dayne Zorko has avoided a sanction after an alleged spitting incident in Saturday night's win over North Melbourne.

The alleged incident occurred in the third quarter where vision surfaced on Twitter of Zorko appearing to spit at Kangaroos defender Jasper Pittard while laying on the turf.

However, according to the AFL's Match Review Officer Michael Christian, the footage available did not conclusively prove that Zorko spat at Pittard.

"We didn't satisfy ourselves that Dayne Zorko spat at Jasper Pittard," Christian said.

Jamie Carragher’s career as a Sky Sports pundit is hanging by a thread while the Danish broadcaster TV3 dropped him from its coverage of the Manchester United v Sevilla match.

Arsenal's Cesc Fábregas said he was 'relaxed' about the FA charges over an alleged spitting incident after the FA Cup match against Hull.

"There was a bit happening at the time, Pittard pushed into the chest of Dayne Zorko and with all the evidence available to us we didn't believe that Dayne Zorko spat at Jasper Pittard."

However, Zorko was did not escape the match review unscathed, slapped with a $1000 fine after being charged with Misconduct against Kangaroos midfielder Jy Simpkin, who was also slugged with a $1000 fine.

After getting tangled up on the turf, Simpkin's foot inadvertently collected the Lions skipper in the mouth, to which he reacted by seemingly pinching Simpkin's leg.

The Kangaroos youngster lashed out after Zorko's pinch and subsequently gave away a free kick.

While Zorko escaped without a suspension for his tangle with Simpkin, star defender Harris Andrews was not so lucky, handed a one-match ban for striking North youngster Nick Larkey during the first quarter.

Andrews' clash with Larkey was assessed as "Intentional Conduct with Low Impact and High Contact".

With a crunch contest against Hawthorn looming, if Andrews is to be available, he will have to front the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday night.
