GWS star in hot water after high hit on Swan


//

GWS ruckman Shane Mumford is expected to come under scrutiny from the AFL’s match review panel, following a high hit on Sydney’s George Hewett during a practice match at Blacktown.

Mumford, who is returning from a year off, has already been suspended from the opening two regular season matches by GWS after footage emerged of the ruckman snorting white powder.

However, he could be set for a longer stint on the sidelines, with the AFL confirming players can be reported and suspended for incidents that occur in practice matches, and any suspension can’t be served at the same time as his club imposed ban.

Mumford, who was playing just the second half of the match following a hamstring strain, appeared to strike Hewett in the head after an off-the-ball incident late in the third quarter.

Hewett didn’t appear to be hurt by the incident, immediately jumping to his feet with a broad smile on his face.

Sydney won the match 12.4 (76) to 7.10 (52).
