Chad Cornes facing one-game ban

The bad news continues for Port Adelaide's Chad Cornes, who now faces a one-match AFL suspension.

Cornes is in the midst of a form slump and the match review panel charged him with making front-on contact against Fremantle's Ryan Crowley on Saturday at Subiaco.

The level-one offence carries a one-match ban and, even if Cornes takes an early plea, his poor record means he cannot reduce the penalty to a reprimand and carryover points.

Cornes was among five players charged on Monday, but he is the only one who faces suspension.

West Coast midfielder Adam Selwood was charged with tripping Collingwood opponent Scott Pendlebury and Essendon key defender Cale Hooker was booked for striking Adelaide's Phil Davis.

The match review panel also charged Sydney defender Lewis Roberts-Thomson with striking young Richmond key forward Ben Griffiths and Melbourne defender Kyle Cheney with striking St Kilda star Brendon Goddard.

All four can accept reprimands with early pleas.

Essendon first-gamer Tyson Slattery and Collingwood midfielder Luke Ball were among players cleared of illegal contact with opponents.
