Former rugby league star Karmichael Hunt will miss Gold Coast's clash with West Coast in Perth on Saturday after accepting a one-match sanction offered by the AFL match review panel.

Hunt was booked for an illegal front-on bump against Geelong ruckman Nathan Vardy last weekend.

He risked a two-match ban had he unsuccessfully challenged the charge at the tribunal.

North Melbourne defender Michael Firrito has also accepted a one-match ban after pleading guilty to engaging in rough conduct against Sydney's Ryan O'Keefe.

The tribunal will not be required to sit on Tuesday night after all of the players charged during round 10 submitted early guilty pleas.

St Kilda's Brett Peak accepted a reprimand and 70.31 points for striking Fremantle's Dylan Roberton.

Collingwood duo Luke Ball and Cameron Wood were reprimanded on tripping and rough conduct charges respectively during Sunday's win over Adelaide.

Adelaide's Rory Sloane and Melbourne's Colin Sylvia were each fined $900 for making negligent contact with an umpire.
