MRO: Campbell faces ban

Tom Campbell is facing a delayed start to the season, after being offered a one-match suspension by the Match Review Officer.

The ruckman was charged for a careless tackle on St Kilda's Lewis Pearce at the midway point of the first quarter on Saturday.

The medical reported indicated Pearce had suffered a concussion, and the Saints' ruckman was sidelined for the remainder of the game.

North is considering whether to challenge the ban.
