Incidents now being probed

August 16, 2017

Picola District Football League has been contacted to investigate two separate incidents from a fortnight ago in which the umpire's reports were mistakenly discarded.

Katamatite’s Nick Clurey and Katandra’s Nathan Bovalino have had their luck run out.

The duo was sent off after receiving a red card in two separate incidents in a fiery Picola District Football League affair at Katandra a fortnight ago, however, their report was initially thrown out.

League operations manager Shane Railton said the reports were initially filed incorrectly and as a result they had then become irrelevant.

But on Friday, both clubs contacted the league to seek an investigation into the incidents.

Accredited AFL investigator Peter Berriman is overseeing the case and it is expected that a verdict will not be given to the league until next week.

The Tigers and Kats play their final game for the season this Saturday against Dookie and Rennie respectively, and while the investigation is continuing the duo is still able to play.

In Kyabram District Football League, Longwood pair Henry Peni and David D’Elia will head to the tribunal after being reported in the Redlegs’ game against Lancaster on Saturday.

D’Elia was booked for using abusive language towards an umpire, while Peni is up on charges of striking and engaging in rough conduct against Wombats player Tannar Cerrone.

Longwood’s Dayne Webber will also front the tribunal after being reported for striking Lancaster’s Daniel Kelsey in the reserves match.

Stanhope star Ryan Emmett was reported for engaging in rough conduct against Merrigum’s Jack Cordingley during the Lions’ win on Saturday.

Peni, Webber and Emmett will appear before the tribunal on Friday night, while D’Elia is up tonight.
