TWO CATS have accepted reprimands from the Match Review Officer after round six of the AFLW season.

Draftee defender Denby Taylor was charged with rough conduct against Fremantle skipper Kara Donnellan during the fourth quarter of the Cats' 36-point loss to the Dockers.

The incident was graded as careless conduct with low impact to the head.

Teammate Georgie Rankin also accepted a reprimand with an early guilty plea, after being charged with rough conduct against Freo forward Ashlee Atkins.

It was also assessed as careless conduct with low impact to the head.
