AFL set for suspension-free round

The AFL could avoid handing down any suspensions for the first time this season, provided two players accept reprimands over weekend incidents.

Geelong star forward Steve Johnson has been charged with tripping Port Adelaide's Robbie Gray in Sunday's match at Skilled Stadium, but will avoid a ban with a guilty plea.

Likewise, Richmond midfielder Daniel Jackson can accept a reprimand after being charged with a low impact strike on Melbourne skipper James McDonald, unless he wants to visit the tribunal and risk a one-game ban.

St Kilda's Leigh Montagna faces a reprimand at worst for allegedly tripping Fremantle's Des Headland, given the low grading of the offence, further discounted because of his previous clean record.

And Carlton ruckman Matthew Kreuzer faces a fine for negligently making contact with an umpire.

A match-day striking report laid against Melbourne's Brent Moloney was withdrawn, after the panel ruled he bumped Richmond's Ben Nason to the shoulder and did not make head contact.
