Katie Brennan will take no further part in today's game after receiving a high hit from Geelong's Jordan Ivey

The incident was graded as careless conduct with medium impact and high contact. 

It's the first suspension to be offered this year, with a number of rough conduct charges having been graded as reprimandable offences in previous weeks. 

Fellow Cat Aasta O'Connor has accepted reprimands with early guilty pleas for separate incidents involving Tiger Grace Campbell, both in the fourth quarter. 

FULL FIXTURE Every round, every game

The first incident was for rough conduct (judged careless conduct with low impact to the body) and the second was for kneeing (intentional with low impact to the body). 

St Kilda key forward Kate Shierlaw will challenge her charge of "other misconduct" stemming from a tussle with Docker Leah Mascall.

As it's her second misconduct charge this season, Shierlaw was offered a $400 fine with an early guilty plea, but under new Tribunal rules will submit a written submission challenging the fine.

The AFL has said a single legally trained jury member can decide on the matter without the need of a fully fledged Tribunal hearing, with Shierlaw not needing to attend.

If found guilty, the Saint will be fined $700, with fines in the AFLW competition on a pro-rata with the AFL competition.

Jess Wuetschner has also accepted a reprimand for rough conduct against Giant Alyce Parker.

The Lion bumped an unaware Parker from behind as the former ran towards the bench, with the incident graded as intentional with low impact to the body.
