The appeal of star Adelaide midfielder Ebony Marinoff against the longest suspension in AFLW history has been adjourned.
Marinoff went to the AFL Appeals Board on Thursday night to challenge her three-match ban for engaging in forceful front-on contact.
The dual Crows premiership player’s ban is the lengthiest since the competition’s inception and would rule her out of a third of the looming nine-game season.
Marinoff was suspended by the tribunal on Tuesday night for a collision which left GWS’ Irish recruit Brid Stack with a fractured neck during a practice match on Sunday.
But her appeal was adjourned until next Thursday after the Crows tried to present fresh video evidence to support her challenge.
Marinoff’s counsel Sam Abbott wanted the appeals board to view a collision between Stack and an advertising hoarding from earlier in Sunday’s match.
That clip wasn’t presented to the initial tribunal hearing.
Appeals board chairman David Jones adjourned the appeal to give the board and the AFL’s counsel Nick Pane time to review the evidence.
Earlier Thursday, Stack posted a picture of herself wearing a neck brace on Twitter.
“Devastated but counting my blessings,” Stack wrote.
“Looking forward to rehab once cleared to do so.”
