A busy night ahead at the AFL Tribunal.

Hawthorn’s Captain and Suns forward Steven May are both facing bans.

Suraya Daly reports.

TRANSCRIPT

May is challenging a two-week ban, for this hit in Sunday’s clash against the Lions which left Brisbane’s Tom Rockliff knocked out.

And the Hawks popular captain Luke Hodge is also fronting the Tribunal for an elbow hit on the Kangaroo’s Andrew Swallow.

This weekend the Richmond Tigers face North Melbourne and it won’t be an easy game.

The team lacks confidence but their captain has uplifting words.

Ivan Maric, Richmond Captain: “You can’t let that fear infect your mind and the way you play.”

Over to NRL, Blues veteran Greg Bird could miss the first two State of Origin games.

He’s facing up to eight-weeks suspension, for a dangerous throw in Sunday’s Anzac Test.

But even with an early guilty plea, he’ll be unavailable for Origin one and two.

In motor sport, there are reports Ford dealers want to put up one million dollars a year to keep Ford racing in V8 supercars.

That’s half the amount needed to run a factory team in the competition.

But Ford says it won’t change plans to withdraw from racing at the end of the year.
