Hawks McGlynn, Crawford face suspensions

Hawthorn have been hit hard by the AFL match review panel, with midfielders Ben McGlynn and Shane Crawford facing suspensions after last Saturday's game against Port Adelaide in Launceston.

McGlynn was charged with engaging in rough conduct on Kane Cornes after he made contact when the Port onballer's head was over the ball and hit with a three-game suspension, which cannot be reduced even with a guilty plea.

Crawford faces the prospect of serving a second suspension this season, for striking Dean Brogan in an offence that drew a one-game suspension, regardless of an early plea.

Crawford sat out the first three games this season after he was suspended for striking North's Daniel Harris in last year's semi-final.

Port were not spared in the review of round eight games, as star midfielder Shaun Burgoyne was served a three-game ban for engaging in rough conduct against Sam Mitchell in an incident that left the Hawks skipper knocked out.

But North Melbourne star Brent Harvey breathed a sigh of relief after his tripping report, laid during last Saturday night's match against West Coast, was thrown out.

Harvey, the fourth favourite for this year's Brownlow Medal, is now free to play his 250th game, against the Western Bulldogs on Sunday.

Collingwood's Nathan Brown also had his report, for striking St Kilda's Luke Ball last Friday night, withdrawn.

Eagle Matt Rosa was charged with a level-two striking offence on Kangaroo Matt Campbell, but can accept a reprimand.

Essendon's Kyle Reimers can accept a $1,950 fine for making negligent contact with an umpire at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

Fremantle's Dean Solomon ($1,800) and Bulldog Tom Williams ($900) can also accept fines for wrestling each other at Subiaco Oval on Sunday.
