Lance Franklin gets one match

Hawthorn star Lance Franklin has been given a one-match ban among 12 charges laid by the AFL match review panel on Monday.

Franklin can accept the suspension for his elbow to the head of Gold Coast midfielder Maverick Weller at the weekend.

His previous poor record means he cannot have the penalty reduced with a guilty plea.

St Kilda ruck-forward Justin Koschitzke faces a two-match suspension for his sling tackle on Geelong's Mitch Duncan.

And Sydney ruckman Shane Mumford has also fallen foul of the panel for a similar tackle.

He can accept two weeks for rough conduct against Carlton's David Ellard in their weekend match.

Geelong duo Mathew Stokes and Josh Hunt have also been hit with one-match bans for striking.

Stokes has been charged over an incident involving Koschitzke, and defender Hunt for striking St Kilda's Adam Schneider.

Others to receive one-match suspensions were Essendon's Kyle Hardingham (rough conduct) and Richmond's Jake King (striking).

Geelong midfielder Joel Corey can escape with a reprimand for a sling tackle, as can Sydney forward Ryan O'Keefe for front-on contact if they make early guilty pleas.

Essendon's Brent Stanton can accept a reprimand for tripping North Melbourne's Nathan Grima because of his previous good record.

Melbourne's Tom Scully and Sydney's Nick Malceski have been given $900 fines for umpire contact.
