Milburn, Browne to face tribunal

Geelong defender Darren Milburn will risk a three-game suspension and Carlton youngster Steven Browne a four-game ban by challenging charges of rough conduct at the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday night.

Milburn was charged for slamming Richmond's Shane Edwards into the turf after pinning his arms in a tackle during Saturday night's match at Telstra Dome.

Edwards had to be assisted from the field after his head crashed into the ground.

Milburn could have accepted a two-match ban had he submitted an early guilty plea.

Browne was charged over contact with Adelaide forward Jason Porplyzia at AAMI Stadium last Saturday, which resulted in Porplyzia sustaining bruising to a small area of his brain.

The contact occurred when Porplyzia bounced off another Carlton player Bret Thornton and into the path of Browne.

Browne could have accepted a three-game suspension for an early guilty plea.

Fremantle's Jeff Farmer had already accepted a one-match ban for striking West Coast's Mark Nicoski, while Carlton's Simon Wiggins and Adelaide's Ivan Maric both accepted fines for wrestling each other.
