Nic Naitanui escapes suspension for hair pull retaliation

West Coast Eagles ruckman Nic Naitanui has been slapped with a $1000 fine for his hit on Zach Merrett during Thursday night’s elimination final.

The star ruckman was reported for rough conduct and was retailing after Merrett pulled his dreadlocks during a heated incident in the third term.

Merrett has also been fined $1000 for misconduct.

Match Review Officer Michael Christian handed down the ruling on Friday night.
