Eagle offered ban

EAST Geelong could be without star Luke Williams for Saturday’s crucial clash with Bannockburn after being cited by the AFL Barwon Match Review Panel.

The former St Albans gun has been offered a one-match suspension for rough conduct on Winchelsea captain Will Ford in the third quarter of the Eagles’ big win at Eastern Reserve.

The Eagles have until 10am Tuesday to decide whether to accept the ban or challenge it at the AFL Barwon Tribunal.

Meanwhile, it was better news for Queenscliff’s Justin Maher.

After being reported in the third quarter of the Coutas’ loss to Torquay for making forceful front-on contact on Tiger Jesse Dawson, Maher has escaped with a reprimand.
