Collingwood's Taylor Adams accepts ban

Collingwood youngster Taylor Adams will miss Friday night's clash with Richmond after choosing not to contest a one-game suspension for an over-zealous bump to Geelong's Joel Selwood on Saturday night.

Adams was not at risk of having the ban increased had he unsuccessfully challenged it at the tribunal, but the Pies decided not to risk the prospect of added carry-over points on his record.

West Coast will have to make do without midfielder Luke Shuey for its trip to Geelong after accepting a one-match sanction for his strike to St Kilda's Tom Curren. Shuey would have risked an extra match on the sidelines had he ventured to the tribunal.

Gold Coast's  Steven May will front the tribunal on Tuesday night after electing to fight a one-game ban for engaging in rough conduct against Brisbane Lion Dayne Zorko.

The key defender would be a significant loss for the Suns ahead of their clash with Hawthorn on Saturday night. May does not face a longer ban should his challenge be unsuccessful.

Suns teammate Brandon Matera has accepted a one-match suspension for engaging in rough conduct against Jed Adcock.

Greater Western Sydney's Devon Smith will also face the tribunal to contest his one-match ban for striking Melbourne's Bernie Vince.

Smith is in a similar position to May and cannot miss any further matches should his challenge fail.

Lions defender Daniel Merrett has decided not to contest a two-match ban for his crude strike on Gold Coast's David Swallow.

Richmond pair Jack Riewoldt and Matt Thomas accepted reprimands, while ruckmen Josh Jenkins (Adelaide) and Matthew Lobbe (Port Adelaide) decided not to contest their fines for making contact with an umpire.
