Clarke has accepted the one-match suspension and will miss Sunday's home match against Melbourne.

Lions first-year Paige Parker has been offered a reprimand for rough conduct against Dockers midfielder Kiara Bowers. Parker has pleaded guilty and will accept a $400 fine as a result.

Another incident assessed by the MRP was the 'tangle of legs' between Lion Kate McCarthy and Docker Philipa Seth. The incidident has been given the all clear.
