West Coast midfielder Luke Shuey is facing a one-week suspension after he was cited by the AFL's match review panel for striking Fremantle's Paul Duffield.

Shuey allegedly punched Duffield in the stomach behind play during the Eagles' eight-goal thumping of their local rivals on Sunday.

The incident was assessed as intentional, low impact and body contact, adding up to a level three offence.

He can accept a one-week sanction with a guilty plea, or risk a two-week ban if he decides to take his case to the tribunal.

Shuey's sanction was the most severe from Round 9 with Essendon star David Zaharakis escaping with a reprimand for his hit on Greater Western Sydney's Tomas Bugg.

Jake Carlisle and Jeremey Cameron can accept $900 fines for wrestling each other, while Taylor Adams and Alwyn Davey can also accept $900 fines for wrestling.

Emerging North Melbourne defender Luke Delaney was charged with instigating and participating in a melee against the Brisbane Lions and was offered fines totalling $3,000.

Five of his Kangaroos team-mates and five Lions were charged with being involved in the same scrap.

    I hope the west coast do a number on the brisbane lions as the eagles are a great team while the lions are a joke..... Anyway just by telling us every second of the day how good jonathan brown is - doesnt make it true....its the same with the dockers champion pavlich ... Both are overated overpaid and under performers..... Week in and week out......i am sorry but you have to hear it...... I am not on the afl list of stooges - and while i am on it.... Leigh matthews - player of the century? Maybe thug of the century......

    Shuey would be a big loss - but just take the one game ban, should still beat Brisbane! Then the following week is a bye so he will be nice and rested to start an assault on the second half of the season :)! C'mon Eagles!!
