Hawthorn's Taylor accepts two-match ban

Hawthorn's Simon Taylor has accepted a two-match suspension for kneeing Geelong's Joel Selwood, but two other players will contest charges at the AFL Tribunal.

Port Adelaide ruckman Dean Brogan will risk a two-game ban by visiting the tribunal on Tuesday night to fight a charge of rough conduct against Essendon's Andy Lovett.

Brogan could have accepted a one-match suspension had he pleaded guilty over the incident, which occurred during the quarter-time break of Sunday's match at AAMI Stadium.

And Geelong forward Steve Johnson will contest a charge of attempting to strike Hawthorn's Luke Hodge at the MCG on Friday night.

Even if he loses, the low grading of the charge means Johnson will not face suspension.

Carlton's Kade Simpson pleaded guilty to making forceful front-on contact with Richmond's Daniel Jackson, earning a reprimand, and the Sydney star Adam Goodes accepted a fine for making contact with an umpire.
