Fremantle’s Sam Sweetkowski sent to tribunal for ‘chicken wing’ tackle on Jack

Fremantle forward Sam Sweetkowski has been sent directly to the tribunal for tackling the ‘chicken wing’ on Collingwood young Jack Ginivan.

The incident happened in the fourth quarter of Collingwood’s 36-point thrilling win over the Perth Dockers, and minutes after Ginivan scolded Fremantle before scoring a goal.

Guinness picked up a loose ball and tried to avoid Svetkowski, who hugged him and held Magpie’s left hand behind his back while pinning him into the turf.

“It’s a chicken wing. It’s a deadset free kick out there,” Gary Lyon said in Fox Footy’s coverage at the time of the incident.

Ginivan did not show any pain after being tackled and did not protest his actions with Docker.

Suitkowski was hit by a serious misconduct charge by AFL match review officer Michael Christian, and Docker was unable to accept the initial application.

The ‘Chicken Wing’ tackle is another Firestorm Ginivan involved this season, quickly becoming a cult hero among 19-year-old Collingwood fans.

Guinness has enjoyed a great second season, scoring 19 goals in eight games and scoring multiple goals in his last five appearances.
