Vince accepts sanction

BERNIE Vince has accepted a $1000 fine with an early plea by the match review panel.

Vince was charged for making careless contact with field umpire Craig Fleer during the second quarter of Saturday night's 41-point win against Adelaide.

The pair clashed heads, with Fleer leaving the ground due to concussion.

In summary, Vince can accept a $1000 sanction with an early plea.

A first offence for making careless contact with an umpire is a $1500 sanction.

Vince has no applicable record which impacts the penalty. An early plea enables him to accept a $1000 sanction.
