A QUIRK of timing has saved the Brownlow expectations of Marcus Bontempelli and his chances of possibly appearing in the AFL final.
Bontempelli only received a $ 2000 fine from the Match Review this week after his late hump on Nick Haynes was classified as & # 39; low & # 39; impact.
Since then, however, it has been shown that Haynes – who struggled to breathe in the immediate aftermath of the blow – sustained a rare fracture of his cricoid (an annular cartilage around his windpipe).
Nick Haynes will miss several weeks with a broken larynx after this collision with Marcus Bontempelli.
