West Coast Eagles to challenge Nic Naitanui’s rough conduct ban

Screengrab of Nic Naitanui's tackle of Port Adelaide's Karl AmonWest Coast will challenge Nic Naitanui’s one-game rough conduct ban at the AFL Tribunal tonight.

The star ruckman’s copped the penalty for his tackle on Karl Amon in Saturday’s 42-point win over Port Adelaide at Optus Stadium.

Naitanui gave away a free kick when he drove Amon into the ground in a tackle in the final quarter of the match. Amon got up and was fine to take his kick but that hasn’t saved Naitanui from a ban for rough conduct.

He was also fined $1000 for attempting to trip Jasper Pittard in the same match.
