WATCH | Franklin to face MRO scrutiny for high bump


Sydney superstar Lance Franklin could come under MRO scrutiny for a high-hit on Carlton’s Nic Newman.

With a ground ball in dispute during the second quarter of Sunday’s clash at the SCG, Franklin opted to collect Newman instead of gathering the football.

Franklin’s shoulder appears to collect Newman above the neck, with the defender hitting the ground post-contact.

Newman managed to get up after the hit and remained on the field.

Watch the incident below.
