The most serious sanction of the weekend was Collingwood midfielder Taylor Adams, who is facing a $2000 fine for an incident with Nick Vlastuin in the Magpies’ win over Richmond on Sunday. 

The final charge was a $1500 fixed financial sanction for Carlton Blues, David Cuningham for striking Fremantle Docker Bailey Banfield.
