A high bump that forced a dazed Paul Chapman from the ground on Anzac Day is expected to feature prominently in the match review panel's appraisal of round six.
Chapman was floored after being struck by Collingwood's Clinton Young. While instances of high bumps typically result in suspension, especially when it involves a player jumping off the ground to deliver a bump, Young could escape punishment.
An apparent difference between Young's blow and other instances in which players have been punished is that the ball was in dispute until marginally before the incident.
Even if Young is charged it is likely the conduct classification would be limited to negligent, rather than reckless, because when he jumped he was still a chance to win possession.
A grading of negligent, low impact and high contact would trigger a penalty of 125 points, which could be cut to a reprimand and 93.75 carry-over points. Young would not qualify for a good-behaviour discount because of a reprimand he accepted in 2009.
Young's teammate, Jack Frost, may not fare as well because of a bump he delivered to Dyson Heppell. While there were negligible repercussions from the blow for Heppell, he was still bumped high while he had his head over the ball.
If the incident was deemed negligent, low impact and high contact it would result in a one-week suspension that could be cut to a reprimand by the second-year Collingwood defender.
Fremantle defender Michael Johnson is also in danger of attracting the rarely issued charge of misconduct for unnecessary contact with an injured player, but his good record should ensure he does not face suspension.
Soon after North Melbourne's Aaron Black hurt his shoulder and began cradling it on his way to the interchange bench, Johnson sought him out and bumped him.
If Johnson is charged with intentional conduct, low impact and body contact, it would attract a penalty of 125 points, which would be cut to 93.75 for the Docker's unblemished record over the past six years. If coupled with a guilty plea that would cut the penalty to a reprimand and 70.31 carry-over points.
Melbourne will be eagerly awaiting the verdict on two possible striking charges from its loss to Sydney on Saturday night.
Co-captain Nathan Jones is likely to escape penalty for a jab to the midriff of Jeremy Laidler because of insufficient impact, but rookie defender Alex Georgiou is less likely to be cleared.
Georgiou was grappling with Sydney's Lance Franklin and, when attempting to free his arms, brushed Franklin's face with a closed fist. If the incident is not discarded because of a lack of impact, it is likely Georgiou's conduct will be classed no higher than reckless, because he was not looking at Franklin when he struck him.
A grading of reckless, low impact and high conduct would trigger a one-match suspension that could be cut to a reprimand.
Western Bulldogs veteran Daniel Giansiracusa is likely to escape penalty for a heavy off-the-ball bump on Adelaide's Patrick Dangerfield on Sunday, because there was minimal - if any - high contact and the bump was delivered within five metres of the ball.
Hawthorn's Josh Gibson was placed on report later on Sunday for an incident in which he heavily clattered into Richmond's Reece Conca, who had bravely run back with the flight of the ball to mark just before the collision with Gibson. The Hawks defender's cause to escape punishment is expected to be helped by having jumped into the air towards Conca before the Tigers midfielder had taken the mark, when he was still a legitimate chance to win possession.
