Superstar Blue to challenge suspension at Tribunal

CARLTON is appealing AFLW best and fairest winner Maddy Prespakis' one-match suspension for a dangerous tackle against Sarah Hosking.

She was charged with rough conduct, with the incident graded as careless, medium impact and high contact.

That carries a one-match suspension with an early guilty plea.

Is reigning AFLW best and fairest in trouble for this tackle?
