Barry Hall cops AFL charge for striking

Controversial Sydney key forward Barry Hall is one of three players to be charged after the weekend's AFL matches.

Hall can accept a two-game ban if he takes an early plea for striking Adelaide fullback Ben Rutten.

North Melbourne utility Drew Petrie and Richmond onballer Trent Cotchin can accept reprimands for their level-two striking offences.

Petrie was charged with striking Western Bulldogs captain Brad Johnson, while Cotchin made contact with St Kilda's Jarryn Geary.

Petrie and Cotchin will have 93.75 carryover points if they accept their penalties.

Hall is risking a three-game ban if he goes to the tribunal, while Petrie and Cotchin would receive one-game suspensions if they take their cases to Tuesday's tribunal and lose.

The review panel also decided to take no further action over match-day reports against Swans pair Heath Grundy and Jesse White, Hawthorn midfielder Jordan Lewis, West Coast onballer Andrew Embley and Port Adelaide's Peter Burgoyne.
