Docker Dawson in the clear

Fremantle finally got some good news from the AFL match review panel with Zac Dawson in the clear to line up in Saturday's western derby.

There was concern Dawson could be the latest Docker under scrutiny for a high hit on Brisbane's Lewis Taylor at Patersons Stadium last Saturday.

Dawson has 97.5 tribunal carryover points meaning any sanction would have put him out of action for the battle with the crosstown rivals. And Fremantle haven't had much luck with the tribunal in 2014.

However, the panel didn't even assess the incident and made no mention of it in their regular Monday report.

Eagle Luke Shuey did have his clash with St Kilda's Nick Riewoldt considered at the review.

But he was found to not have a case to answer.

"Riewoldt is leading to the ball and jumps for a mark," the panel wrote in their report.

"As the ball is going over the St Kilda player’s head, Shuey makes contact to the back of his opponent and Riewoldt falls heavily.

"A free kick was paid at the time for the push and it was the view of the panel that Shuey was seeking to spoil and his actions were not unreasonable in the circumstances. No further action was taken."
