Nathan Brown bump on Adam Saad, reported, AFL red card discussion


ST Kilda defender Nathan Brown has been reported for an ugly, late bump on Essendon’s Adam Saad.

The Essendon defender had handballed the ball when Brown hit him late, with Saad clearly not braced for contact.

Saad was taken off the field on a stretcher and did not return to the game due to concussion.

The Bombers were already a man down after veteran Brendon Goddard limped off with a suspected knee injury.

While Brown didn’t get Saad high — with his concussion seemingly caused by whiplash before he hit the ground — the late timing of the bump could prove costly.
