Fremantle will challenge the AFL tribunals verdict at the AFL Appeals Board today.
Fremantle have launched a fresh challenge over Nat Fyfe’s two-week suspension for striking Hawthorn’s Jordan Lewis during the Dockers’ 19-point win over Hawthorn on Sunday.
Fremantle have advised the AFL of its intention to challenge the AFL’s ruling in a hearing before the AFL’s Appeals Board in Melbourne on Wednesday.
The AFL tribunal dismissed the club’s appeal against the two-week ban on Tuesday.
Even with an early guilty plea Fyfe would have reduced his sanction to 207.19 points and he still would have missed the final two matches of the home-and-away season.
As it stands however, the failed challenge means the penalty sits at 276.5 points, meaning he will miss Sunday’s game with the Brisbane Lions at the GABBA and the Dockers’ last round clash with Port Adelaide at Patersons Stadium.
