North Melbourne star Ben Brown has escaped suspension for his high elbow on GWS defender Matt Buntine.

Brown was reported for a high hit on Buntine during the second quarter of Sunday’s match against the Giants at Blundstone Arena.

Match Review Officer Michael Christian deemed the incident as insufficient force and decided to take no further action against the Roos spearhead.

Brown’s captain, Jack Ziebell, also escaped sanction for his bump on Toby Greene but their Kangaroos teammates Kayne Turner and Luke Davies-Uniacke can accept fines of $2000 and $1000 respectively for striking and making contact with an umpire.

Carlton’s Dale Thomas can accept a $2000 sanction for striking Josh Dunkley in the narrow defeat to the Western Bulldogs.

Fremantle veteran David Mundy can accept a $1000 fine after he was charged with misconduct for pushing Port Adelaide's Robbie Gray into the path of an umpire.
