Dockers star, Tigers recruit reprimanded, Roos defender escapes sanction

TWO CHARGES have been laid out of the AFLW practice matches held over the weekend.

Fremantle star Kiara Bowers and Richmond recruiter-turned-midfielder Lauren Tesoriero have both accepted reprimands for rough conduct from their respective games.

It means the bump laid by North Melbourne defender Tahlia Randall on Carlton's Lauren Brazzale escaped penalty, despite the Blue going to hospital for precautionary scans.

In the case of Bowers, her tackle on young Crow Madison Newman was graded as careless conduct with low impact to the head.

Classed as a $400 sanction (AFLW financial penalties are on a pro-rata with the AFL's), she can accept a reprimand with an early guilty plea.

Tesoriero – making her return from a torn ACL after deciding against surgery – was cited for an incident involving West Coast skipper Emma Swanson.

The Tiger's case was classified as intentional conduct with low impact to the body, with the same financial sanction and reprimand situation as Bowers.
