Swans and Suns star set to face AFL Tribunal

The Sydney Swans are sweating on the AFL match review panel’s assessment, after star Lance Franklin was cited for a bump on Richmond’s Connor Menadue.

Franklin was reported for rough conduct on Menadue in the second quarter of the Swans’ win on Saturday at the MCG.

The Swans will be desperate to have Franklin available for Friday’s night clash against Essendon at the SCG as the club sits juts wone win outside the top eight.


Gold Coast Suns star Matt Rosa will also be scrutinised by the panel.

He’ll likely find himself in some trouble for his round-arm blow to the face of Carlton’s Dale Thomas, who will also be scrutinised for his front-on bump to the Suns’ Adam Saad.
