The key forward will miss the Eagles’ clash with Brisbane at the GABBA on Saturday.
The West Coast Eagles have accepted the one-game suspension offered to forward Josh Kennedy after a high bump on Sydney midfielder Zak Jones on Sunday.
Kennedy was charged with a rough conduct offence for the bump on the rookie at Patersons Stadium.
Because of his good record – he has never fronted the tribunal since being drafted in 2005 – he was able to accept a one-game ban with an early guilty plea.
The incident was assessed as negligent conduct (one point), high impact (three points) and high contact (two points), equalling a total of six activation points.
Such an amount would normally result in an automatic three-match ban, however due to his unblemished record the penalty was reduced by 25% to two matches.
An early guilty plea brought it down to one-match, meaning the key forward will only miss the Eagles’ clash against the Brisbane Lions on Saturday.
