Double blow for Cats

Double blow for Cats

GEELONG youngster James Parsons is facing a fortnight on the sidelines for his errant elbow to the jaw of Hawthorn veteran Luke Hodge during the Cats’ mauling of the Hawks yesterday.

Parsons is one of two Geelong players reported during the Easter Monday clash, with Sam Menegola offered one week for sling tackle on Hodge.

However. the AFL Match Review Panel cleared Hawthorn defender Josh Gibson has been cleared of any wrongdoing for bump that resulted in young Cat Tom Ruggles going from the ground in the second quarter.

The MRP deemed Parsons hit on Hodge to be intentional conduct with medium impact to the head, while Menegola’s tackle was assessed as careless conduct with medium impact to the head.

Parsons will be free to return for the Round 7 trip to the Gold Coast, while Menegola will be right to play Collingwood in Round 6.
