Williams, Wilson can accept reprimands

Essendon forward Mark Williams and West Coast youngster Callum Wilson can play in the AFL pre-season semi-finals, despite striking charges.

Williams and Wilson were offered reprimands after the match review panel looked at incidents from the latest round of practice matches.

The panel handed Williams a level-two charge for striking young Melbourne star Liam Jurrah in the second term of Thursday night's NAB Cup quarter-final.

Williams' good record means he can reduce the penalty from a one-match ban to a reprimand with an early plea.

The same applies for Wilson, who was charged with striking Gold Coast defender Nathan Krakouer in Sunday's quarter-final.

Essendon will play St Kilda on Friday night and West Coast will host Collingwood on Saturday in the pre-season semis.

The panel also upheld a striking charge against Port Adelaide defender Alipate Carlile from Friday night's practice match in Alice Springs.

Carlile was booked for striking new Richmond ruckman Tom Derickx, but it was assessed as a level-one offence.

That means the biggest penalty Carlile faces is a reprimand and carryover demerit points.
