Star North Melbourne midfielder Ben Cunnington will head to the AFL Tribunal to challenge his one-match suspension for a high bump on Adelaide’s Rory Laird.
The incident in last Sunday’s match at Marvel Stadium which the Crows won by 41 points was assessed as careless conduct, medium impact and high contact.
The date of the tribunal hearing has yet to be confirmed.
If dual club best-and-fairest winner Cunnington is successful in having the ban overturned, he will be free to play in Sunday’s twilight fixture against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium.
The Kangaroos are the only team still without a win after the opening four rounds of the AFL season.
