AFL scrutiny certain for McPhee high hit

07/08/2011 06:50:04 PM Comments (0)

Fremantle's Adam McPhee can expect time on the sidelines after the AFL match review panel examines his head-high hit on St Kilda's Sam Gilbert.

McPhee leapt off the ground and clipped Gilbert's head with his upper arm during the Dockers' 41-point loss to St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Friday night.

It resulted in angry remonstrations from Saints players, with McPhee's guernsey torn to shreds in the resulting fracas.

The 29-year-old has been suspended three times in the past five seasons.

The match review panel will make its determinations on Monday afternoon.

Players have until lunchtime on Tuesday to decide whether to fight any penalties at the tribunal.
