Mick Warner: “It needs to be outlawed today by the AFL”

Herald Sun and AFL reporter Mick Warner says Toby Greene’s tactics need to be outlawed by the AFL.

Greene has come under scrutiny after extending his leg several times against his opponent in a marking contest to protect his space.

Warner says the AFL needs to take a strong stance.

“No other player has done this so blatantly,” he told Halftime with James Willis.

“Hopefully Michael Christian comes out and says it was the right decision on the day because it is such a grey area, but going forward, we don’t want to see that. So a free kick against and if you put the studs in the face or chest of an opponent you face suspension.

“You would like some strong language out of the AFL today saying this is unacceptable.”

Greene was last year was fined $1,500 last year for a similar incident against Western Bulldog’s Luke Dalhaus.

Warner also thinks Collingwood have been dealt an unfair draw heading into week two of the finals.

Whoever wins out of the Pies or Giants this Saturday will face Richmond the following week on Friday night.

“The fixturing has been a farce in the AFL finals since it came out. Collingwood have to play the Giants, and if they win play the red hot Richmond off a six day break verse a 15 day break for the best team in the competition.

“Fairness should be first priority, TV second.”
