Ziebell had been handed a one-match ban on Monday by match review officer Michael Christian following the incident in the Tigers’ win over North on Sunday.

Christian had graded the incident as intentional with low impact and high contact. North disputed the classification, arguing that the contact was accidental rather than intentional, and of insufficient force. A medical report provide by Richmond doctor Greg Hickey stated that Conca had not been injured in the incident, while the Roos argued a lack of remonstration from Conca’s teammates pointed in favour of Ziebell.
