LeCras faces ban


CLEVER West Coast forward Mark LeCras is set to miss Sunday’s AFL table-topping WA derby against Fremantle after being offered a onematch ban by the match review panel yesterday for striking Hawthorn defender James Frawley.

If LeCras chooses to contest the charge at the tribunal today he risks having the sanction doubled to two weeks. A rough conduct charge against Essendon’s Adam Cooney for a heavy hit on GWS midfielder Stephen Coniglio has been referred straight to the tribunal, meaning the Bombers midfielder cannot submit an early guilty plea.
