Carlton defender Jed Lamb has been handed a one match suspension for ‘unreasonable/unnecessary contact to the eye region of Jade Gresham’.
Lamb was caught on camera appearing to scratch at Gresham’s eye region in the second quarter of last night’s match against St Kilda.
Watch the incident here:
Lamb will miss next week's game against Hawthorn at Etihad Stadium.
He was also cleared of contact with Gresham at the end of the scuffle, with Lamb making contact with Gresham with his knees, but with insufficient force to be charged.
St Kilda went on to win the game comfortably, running out 16.20 (116) to 7.10 (52) victors.
