Collingwood midfielder Dane Swan will contest his tripping charge at the AFL Tribunal next week.
Swan was hit with a level one offence for tripping Melbourne's Sam Blease in the third quarter of Collingwood's 42-point win at the MCG on Monday.
The incident was assessed as reckless conduct (two points), low impact (one point) and body contact (one point), drawing a total of 80 demerit points and a reprimand.
Swan has a five-year good record, reducing the penalty by 25 percent, to 60 demerit points and a reprimand.
An early plea would have reduced the total of demerit points by a further 25 percent to 45 points but the 2011 Brownlow Medallist - who gathered 42 disposals in the match in another dominant performance - has still chosen to fight the charge as he does not risk suspension by heading to the tribunal.
The hearing will be held on Tuesday with Collingwood having the bye this weekend.
In other incidents to come from Monday's match, Melbourne's Luke Tapscott has accepted a one-match ban for striking Collingwood's Alex Fasolo.
Tapscott will miss the Demons' Round 13 encounter with GWS at the MCG.Meanwhile, Collingwood's Dayne Beams has accepted his $1950 fine for making reckless contact with an umpire.
