Dimattina escapes AFL Tribunal citing

Umpires have decided not to take any action against Western Bulldogs utility Paul Dimattina over an alleged striking incident in his side's AFL loss to Port Adelaide.

Umpire Martin Ellis decided there was no evidence of a clear striking action from Dimattina on Port's Jarrad Schofield during the match.

The incident prompted Port coach Mark Williams to accuse the Bulldogs of "head-hunting".

Ellis also decided not to take action against Port's Brett Montgomery over an incident involving the Bulldogs' Kieran McGuinness.

The video review of the weekend's matches is continuing.

So far three players will appear at the AFL Tribunal - Essendon's Dustin Fletcher and Damian Cupido and the Bulldogs' Mitch Hahn.

Fletcher was reported for striking Brett Burton in the last minute of Adelaide's big win at AAMI Stadium on Friday night.

Earlier in the match, Cupido was booked for engaging in rough play against Crows utility Tyson Edwards.

Hahn is charged with striking Port Adelaide's Brendon Lade.
