Rocca suspended for two games

Collingwood forward Anthony Rocca has been suspended for two games by the AFL tribunal after being found guilty of rough conduct.

Rocca pleaded not guilty to the charge after being cited for his shepherd on Sydney's Sean Dempster at Telstra Stadium last Saturday night and argued it was an accident he made high contact.

However the tribunal agreed with the match review panel's original finding and outed him for games against Hawthorn and St Kilda.

The Western Bulldogs' Nathan Eagleton also lost his challenge, as he was suspended for two games for striking Fremantle's Chris Tarrant in the first weekend of round 12.

Eagleton pleaded guilty to the charge but attempted to have his strike downgraded from intentional to reckless in an attempt to reduce his suspension by one game.

The tribunal rejected his attempt and suspended him from games against the Kangaroos and Port Adelaide.
