Maric free to play despite guilty ruling

Adelaide ruckman Ivan Maric remains eligible to play in Saturday night's Showdown against Port Adelaide despite the AFL tribunal finding him guilty of rough conduct.

The tribunal upheld the match review panel verdict on Maric's contact with Fremantle forward Michael Walters on Saturday at AAMI Stadium.

Maric became the first player this year to go before the AFL tribunal but he was not risking suspension because his penalty was a reprimand and carryover points.

Field umpire Dean Margetts reported Maric during the match and after an hour-long hearing on Tuesday, the tribunal decided Maric's penalty should stand.
