Joel Cross Accepts Reprimand for Striking

3 April 2018

South Adelaide co-captain Joel Cross has accepted a fine and reprimand for striking during the Panthers Round 1 win over Glenelg.

The SANFL Match Review Panel adjudged Cross made intentional low impact to the body of Tigers defender Aaron Joseph during a tussle early in the game.

The Club has entered an early guilty plea and accepted punishment of a fine and reprimand. Therefore Cross will avoid a suspension and be available to face Norwood this Sunday at the Parade.

Cross also remains eligible for a potential third Magarey Medal as his sanction does not include a suspension.

Charge: Striking

Conduct: Intentional
Impact: Low
Contact: Body

Penalty: 1 Match (Base Sanction) | Fine ($200) & Reprimand (Early Plea)
