Cox fined by MRP


In the aftermath of Collingwood’s narrow Grand Final victory over Brisbane, ruckman Mason Cox finds himself lighter in the pocket. The Match Review Officer slapped him with a $3,000 fine for a third-quarter tussle with Brisbane’s Darcy Gardiner. The incident, described as “careless conduct with low impact and high contact,” could cost Cox a bit less—$2,000—if he opts for an early plea. The clash involved Gardiner going for the ball and Cox making high contact, leading to further scrutiny from officials. No additional charges were laid from the Grand Final game
