Setterfield charged with rough conduct

R4 | McGovern kicks three Mitch McGovern kicks three goals in the Round 4 match against Gold Coast Suns.

CARLTON midfielder Will Setterfield has been charged with engaging in rough conduct by the AFL’s Match Review Officer.

The incident occurred in the second quarter of Sunday’s match against the Gold Coast Suns at Metricon Stadium.

The grading was based on Setterfield’s tackle of Suns' forward Will Powell resulting in concussion.

Powell left the ground following the incident and was unable to play out the remainder of the match.

The incident has been assessed as careless conduct with high impact and contact, and is therefore classified as a two-match sanction.

Carlton has accepted the sanction handed down and Setterfield will miss the next two matches against the Bulldogs and Hawthorn.

He will be available for selection again for Round 7.
