The Western Bulldogs have decided to challenge the one-game suspension offered by the Match Review Officer to defender Taylor Duryea.

Duryea was handed the ban for rough conduct during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss against the West Coast Eagles at Marvel Stadium.

The incident was assessed as careless conduct, medium impact and high contact.

Duryea was the first Bulldogs player to be charged with a game-related sanction by the MRO in the 2023 season to date.

The AFL Tribunal will sit tonight (Tuesday, August 22), with the hearing involving Duryea scheduled for 6.30pm.
