Adelaide captain Taylor Walker and North Melbourne defender Scott Thompson are among four players offered fines after being charged by the AFL match review panel.

Walker, Thompson and Fremantle's Zac Clarke were charged with striking offences and offered $1000 fines with an early guilty plea, while Carlton's Levi Casboult was offered a $1500 fine for admitting a rough conduct charge.

Geelong's Lincoln McCarthy avoided any charge for his tackle which led to North Melbourne skipper Andrew Swallow being concussed, the panel deeming the tackle as "not unreasonable" and noting Swallow's head hit the ground on landing.
