D'Arcy suspended for nasty AFLW kick

D'Arcy suspended for nasty AFLW kick

Collingwood player Sarah D'Arcy has been offered a two-game suspension for kicking Carlton's Sarah Hosking in Friday night's AFLW opener.

In a bizarre scene that occurred in the third quarter at Princes Park, D'Arcy lashed out at Hosking's groin after taking a mark.

The umpire overturned the mark and awarded Hosking a free kick.

It is believed new AFL match review officer Michael Christian took the length of the women's season -- with just six games remaining in the regular season -- into account when deciding the two-match ban.

D'Arcy will miss matches against Fremantle and GWS.

Hosking produced a light-hearted response to the incident after the game:
