Shawry blasts the AFL over three player penalties


Tony Shaw has blasted the AFL over their handling of three incidents early in the season.

Three players – James Sicily, Aaron Sandilands, and Connor McKenna – were among those who attracted the Match Review Officer’s attention during the opening rounds of the season.

Sicily was suspended for one week for kneeing Geelong’s Joel Selwood in Round 2, while Sandilands escaped suspension for a high hit on Jarryd Lyons and Connor McKenna received a three-week ban from the Tribunal for biting Tory Dickson.

Shawry told 3AW Football the three penalties were too light.

  • Sicily: “It was pretty cowardly”
  • Sandilands: “Could not believe he got a fine”
  • McKenna: “Probably the worst thing you can do on a football field”
