ET: Matera faces ban

Fremantle small forward Brandon Matera has been offered a one-match suspension for striking West Coast’s Jake Waterman on Sunday, meaning he could miss his side’s Round 1 clash with North Melbourne.

The MRO determined that the contact with the head was intentional and low impact.

The 27-year-old played 18 games for the Dockers last season, and impressed in the JLT Community Series, kicking three goals.

Fremantle has until this afternoon to challenge the decision.
