The independent Match Review Panel (MRP) - consisting of Simon Micallef (Chair), Alan Davidson and Alan Contini - convened to consider the following incident from Round 7 of the Hyundai A-League:

1. The incident involving Jacob Burns (Perth Glory) in or around the 44th minute of Perth Glory-s game against Central Coast Mariners on Saturday evening. The MRP has the authority to consider the incident pursuant to clause 9.1(c)(i) of the Hyundai A-League Disciplinary Regulations. In reviewing the incident during this afternoon-s meeting, the MRP took into consideration submissions lodged by Perth Glory. The MRP determined that the Player had committed the offence of "Assault on a Player (e.g. violent conduct when not challenging for the ball)" against John Hutchinson and proposed a sanction of the Mandatory Match Suspension plus one (1) addition Match. This is the minimum sanction for such an offence under the Hyundai A-League Disciplinary Regulations.
