Three players to face AFL tribunal

Star West Coast midfielder Daniel Kerr is one of three players contesting charges at the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday night.

Kerr was reported for striking Carlton's Marc Murphy before the opening bounce of Friday night's clash at Etihad Stadium.

He was always likely to contest the charge as the one-match ban stood whether or not he took the early guilty plea.

Western Bulldogs fullback Brian Lake will contest a one-week ban for tripping Sydney midfielder Jarrad Moore.

And Carlton first-year player Mitch Robinson is challenging his two-week suspension for engaging in rough conduct against West Coast's Adam Selwood.

Bulldogs forward Scott Welsh will be unavailable for Friday's clash with Richmond after accepted a one-week ban for engaging in rough conduct in Swans tagger Jared Crouch.

St Kilda ruckman Michael Gardiner will also miss Saturday's clash with North Melbourne after pleading guilty to striking Melbourne counterpart Mark Jamar.

Hawthorn captain Sam Mitchell and Richmond key defender Luke McGuane have accepted reprimands after pleading guilty to separate striking incidents.

And Crouch and Port Adelaide's Travis Boak have both been fined $1950 for making negligent contact with an umpire.
