Collingwood AFLW recruit Aliesha Newman has been suspended for one week for a sling tackle on Carlton’s Vaomua Laloifi.
Newman was reported for the tackle in the fourth quarter of the Magpies’ win in Thursday night’s season opener.
The match review officer charged Newman with rough conduct and considered the incident careless conduct with medium impact and high contact which drew a one-match ban as a first offence.
Newman, a pacy forward who joined the Magpies from Melbourne in the trade period, is set to miss Saturday’s clash with Gold Coast.
Several reprimands were also handed out.
Collingwood skipper Brianna Davey and Carlton star and reigning AFLW best and fairest Madison Prespakis each received a reprimand for wrestling each other.
Gold Coast’s Jade Pregelj was offered the same penalty for tripping Melbourne’s Tegan Cunningham.
Geelong’s Aasta O’Connor was charged with rough conduct (dangerous tackle) on North Melbourne’s Ashleigh Riddell and can also accept a reprimand.
GWS’ Elle Bennetts was reprimanded for striking Fremantle’s Hayley Miller, while Adelaide’s Eloise Jones received a reprimand – for rough conduct on West Coast’s Dana Hooker.
