Selwood lucky, says Cats coach

CATS coach Chris Scott thinks his skipper Joel Selwood was lucky to escape punishment following his  ltercation with Brisbane tagger Andrew Raines on Saturday night.

During a spiteful game Raines' niggling tactics resulted in Selwood lashing out, only to come off second best after Raines retaliated with a right hand to the jaw.

Raines was handed a three-game suspension by the match review panel but Selwood's hit on Raines was not deemed forceful enough.

"He was fortunate in this example," Scott said.

"He needs to make a slight adjustment to how he reacts to defensive players off the ball."

Raines' five-year good record means he can accept a one-match ban with an early plea.

St Kilda midfielder Leigh Montagna contested a two-match suspension at last night's tribunal hearing for a level three striking offence on Melbourne's James Magner.

The 28-year-old could not accept a reduced penalty because of a poor recent record.
