$1.80 Brownlow Medal Favorite Reported

FREMANTLE star Nat Fyfe’s Brownlow Medal hopes hang by a thread after he was reported for a high hit on North Melbourne’s Ben Jacobs on Sunday.

Fyfe and Jacobs both charged at a ground ball but the Freo star appeared to collect Jacobs in the head with his elbow.

The North midfielder reeled backwards in pain as his teammates ran in to remonstrate with Fyfe, who was reported.

Fyfe has already been fined twice by the Match Review Panel this season, meaning any guilty finding will result in an automatic suspension and ineligibility for the Brownlow Medal.

He was fined $1000 for tripping Bulldog Koby Stevens in round seven, and fined $1500 for a second low-level offence after he was found guilty of rough conduct for hitting Hawthorn’s Taylor Duryea in the face with his forearm in round 15.

If Fyfe has no history of this conduct it would be and open and shut case, a small fine at best. But it does have history and it was reckless high contact. Bookmakers are yet to react and still have Fyfe installed the $1.80 Fav.
