Taylor Walker has been offered a one-week suspension for his brutal high bump on Geelong player Zach Tuohy.

The Crows captain flattened Tuohy in Adelaide’s win over the Cats at Adelaide Oval on Thursday night.

With Tuohy looking at the ball and trying to regather after a juggle, Walker left his feet and connected with his shoulder to the Cats players face.



The incident overshadowed an otherwise brilliant night for the Crows, who ran out winners 16.16 (112) to 14.13 (97).

Walker’s teammate Bryce Gibbs has also been offered a $2000 sanction for rough conduct on Geelong’s skipper Joel Selwood.

The incidents came as the Crows, with Tom Lynch kicking four goals, put some fat on their slim finals chances.

Both flashpoints came as Adelaide defied their former club champion Patrick Dangerfield (three goals, 33 disposals, 10 tackles) and his Cats, who remain in seventh place.
