Chapman, Dunn to come under review

Geelong utility Paul Chapman and Melbourne opponent Lynden Dunn are certain to come under AFL video review after their running battle in Saturday's game.

Chapman lost his cool nearing half time at Skilled Stadium and coach Chris Scott was seen calming him down in the players' race.

Dunn was his direct opponent and the Cats star clearly was angered by the Melbourne player's tagging, throwing him to the ground.

"I remember looking at it (the incident) on the ground and I just thought he was going to stomp on his head at one stage," Geelong key forward Cameron Mooney told Channel Seven's Game Day.

"He looked a little bit angry there, Chappy.

"He held it together, because I have seen Chappy actually lose it.

"He was probably getting a little bit heavily tagged and probably wasn't getting the ball as much as he wanted.

"We probably weren't giving him the ball enough as well and he was probably getting frustrated a little bit."

Former Geelong coach Mark Thompson, now an assistant at Essendon, could see the lighter side of Chapman's anger.

"That's 'Chappy', he's an incredible person - I love him," Thompson told Channel Seven's Game Day.

"I love the expressions on his face when he does get angry."

Scott's role in calming down Chapman was a far cry from his playing days at Brisbane.

"On the football field, he used to scare the hell out of a lot of us," Mooney said of his current coach.

"Off it, he's just a little teddy bear - we've all got a bit of a man crush on Scotty down there at the moment, he's just a fantastic bloke."

The match review panel will also look into an incident during the third term on Saturday night in Perth, where Fremantle player Dylan Roberton appeared to elbow Hawthorn's Xavier Ellis to the head.
