Fremantle star midfielder Nat Fyfe will challenge his striking charge at the AFL tribunal on Tuesday night.
The Dockers star was set to miss the final two matches of the AFL home-and-away season after being offered a two game suspension for an off-the-ball incident on Hawthorn’s Jordan Lewis.
With Fremantle’s top-four aspirations still not set in stone, the Dockers have chosen to challenge Fyfe’s charge.
Fyfe collected Lewis with his arm, with the incident was graded as intentional, high contact and low impact for a level three striking offence.
Lewis left the field straight after the incident, but later returned to the game, racking up 44 disposals.
Fyfe’s poor record means that even if he pleads guilty he cannot escape the two-game ban.
However, the Dockers only risk extra carryover points if they are unsuccessful.
If they successfully challenge the charge, Fyfe’s ban will be downgraded to one match.
