North Melbourne veteran Brent Harvey could miss Friday’s AFL preliminary final against Sydney after being offered a one-game ban for rough conduct by the AFL’s match review panel.
Harvey was sanctioned for a high-hit on Geelong captain Joel Selwood in last Friday’s semi-final win over the Cats at the MCG.
His previous poor record and resulting carry-over points meant the 36-year-old was unable to have the sanction downgraded to a reprimand with an early guilty-plea.
Harvey only returned to action last week after serving a three-game ban for a separate incident.
He will now miss the Kangaroos’ first preliminary final in seven years unless he successfully fights the charge at the AFL tibunal.
