Hille and Selwood cleared

Hille and Selwood cleared

David Hille and Adam Selwood have both been cleared by the Match Review Panel ahead of this week’s final NAB Cup Challenge matches, music to the ears for a large number of frantic fantasy coaches.

Hille looked to be in doubt for Round 1 after a high bump on Shane O’Bree in Friday night’s 43 point loss to Collingwood. He was deemed to have made minimal contact to O’Bree’s head. The ruckman is now free to take on North Melbourne in Bendigo on Friday.

Meanwhile West Coast’s Adam Selwood was also cleared after his hit on Fremantle’s Clayton Hinkley was thrown out, he is free to play Hawthorn at Visy Park on Friday.

Hille’s bump looked worthy a few weeks suspension and the thought of not having him available for the first few rounds. He has not been charged, so fantasy coaches who have him in their side can take a huge sigh of relief.

    It actually would’ve been interesting had Hille gotten suspended.

    I’m assuming many coaches would’ve jumped off him, and picked up a Simmonds or Sandilands, thus making him a somewhat unique pick to those who copped a zero for one round.

    Lucky Obree didnt get injured, or else Hille would of had weeks off. It seems these days that it does not matter if a player bumps high, because if the player who is struck jumps up straight away, no suspension, but if he is down and injured, suspension.

    Please… the reason he jumped up is because there was minimal contact… Nothing in it at all

    I’m pretty sure he would have been free to play this week regardless monty, as I don’t think NAB Cup suspensions can be served in the NAB Challenge games.

    Either way, he’s pretty lucky IMO.

    How much does the fact that some players have suspension points carried over from previous misdemeanours affect whether you choose them in your team?

    Sometimes it does, sometimes not. I’ve picked Goddard (90 odd points) but not Peter Burgoyne who has the same. I figure Goddard will be worth the week or so out if it comes to that.
