Milne can accept AFL reprimand

St Kilda midfielder Stephen Milne can accept a reprimand for striking after his running battle with Carlton opponent Aaron Joseph in Saturday night's AFL match.

Joseph can also accept a $900 misconduct fine for stepping on Milne's hand.

Milne was charged with a level-two striking offence, which carries a one-match ban.

But he has a five-year good record, reducing the penalty to a reprimand and 93.75 carryover points.

An early plea would reduce the points further to 70.31.

Milne and Joseph clashed frequently during Saturday's game, which the Saints won to secure a home elimination final.

St Kilda will host Sydney this Saturday night at Etihad Stadium.

Carlton's Mitch Robinson and St Kilda's Dean Polo were cleared of incidents.

There was speculation about a tackle that Carlton captain Chris Judd laid on Sam Gilbert.

But the incident was so innocuous that it did not even feature in the league's weekly tribunal email.
