Bombers teammate Mason Redman was charged with kicking Eagle Oscar Allen, but will escape with a $2000 fine for the incident that was assessed as intentional conduct and low impact to the body.
lucky I think- it didn’t look good at all2k fine
Was his first real up field foray, I thought his contested stuff was really good. 11 contested possessions and 4 clearances is good value from your wingman, especially considering he still had that run and carry element to go along with it.Thought Mason was really good against GWS - not named in any of the best players but he was solid - 17 disposals - of which 11 were contested, plenty of pressure acts and shows some real desperation to get the ball. He's certainly willing to take the game on also - he's progressing really well for a 16 game player - well done Mason!

GLENN McFARLANE reports …
Emerging Essendon defender Mason Redman has revealed he is in discussions with the club about a new contract, saying he is desperate to be a part of the Bombers' next chapter.
While admitting the negotiations are still preliminary at this stage, the 21-year-old has good currency after shaking off a host of frustrating injuries to produce a career-best season running off half back.
"I absolutely love being here at Essendon," Redman told the Herald Sun. "There is no doubt I want to stay … that would be my first priority."
"We have started conversations with the club and it is moving on quite nicely at the moment. I just want to concentrate on my footy and keeping my body right, and it will take care of itself."
After playing only five games in his first three seasons, Redman has played 12 straight since being chosen for the Bombers' Round 4 game against Brisbane
He has given the club plenty of run off half back and takes the game on with his run and carry.
A native of Millicent, 400km south east of Adelaide, he was recruited to the Bombers from Glenelg, as pick 30 in the 2015 national draft, and there is little doubts the Crows and the Power would have watched him with interest. But he is keen to stay with the Bombers.
