Collingwood enigma Jordan De Goey has been handed a one-game suspension for rough conduct in his ‘dump’ tackle on Geelong megastar Patrick Dangerfield.

AFL match review officer Michael Christian released his charges for the three AFL games played on Saturday on Sunday, which included the offer of a one-match ban for De Goey.

Early in the final quarter of the Pies’ dramatic 13-point loss, De Goey grabbed Dangerfield in the middle, spinning him around in an attempt to bring him down before throwing the Cats gun into the turf, his head hitting the box.

It is a maneuver that the MRP is determined to eradicate.

Collingwood Magpies, Jordan De Goey and MRO result in dangerous tackle ban on Patrick Dangerfield

The MRO rated the incident as reckless driving, medium impact and high contact.

Dangerfield was unharmed in the tackle and was able to get up and take a free kick.

With an early plea, De Goey will miss Collingwood’s fourth clash with the Eagles at Marvel Stadium.

However, the club could challenge the suspension in the AFL Tribunal this week.

Brisbane ruckman Oscar McInerney also picked up a one-game ban for hitting North Melbourne’s Tristan Xerri.
