Black accepts two-week ban

Fremantle defender Heath Black has accepted a two-match suspension for striking Brisbane's Troy Selwood.

The Dockers chose not to contest the charge at the AFL Tribunal, which could have seen Black rubbed out for three matches had it been unsuccessful.

The second-quarter incident was assessed as intentional conduct (three points), medium impact (two points) and high contact (two points), drawing 325 demerit points and a three-match sanction.

Black had no existing record and his early plea reduced the penalty by 25 per cent to a 243.75 points and a two-match sanction.

Black also accepted a $900 fine for wrestling Selwood.
