Geelong's Mooney accepts one-match AFL ban

Geelong forward Cameron Mooney has accepted a one-match AFL ban for a high hit on Adelaide's Graham Johncock, putting his place in the Cats' finals campaign in doubt.

With Geelong having the bye in round 22, Mooney will miss the penultimate home and away round clash against Sydney on August 27.

He then faces a tough task to force his way back into the Cats' best 22 as they push for a third premiership cup in five years.

Mooney was reported in Sunday's clash at AAMI Stadium which the second-placed Cats won by 11 points.

Because of his poor disciplinary record, the 31-year-old Mooney could not get the penalty reduced with an early guilty plea.

Adelaide defender Shaun McKernan and Richmond forward Tyrone Vickery accepted reprimands for respective tripping and rough conduct charges.

St Kilda midfielder Nick Dal Santo and Port Adelaide first-gamer Tom Jonas accepted $900 fines for umpire contact.

The tribunal was not required to sit on Tuesday night.
