JACK Ziebell is free to play next week after the match review panel gave the green light to a bump that broke Travis Cloke’s ribs.

Upon reviewing the incident, the MRP determined no forceful high contact was made and the action was not unreasonable in the circumstances.

Cloke was in the act of kicking when Ziebell cannoned into him during the final quarter of the Good Friday clash.

Cloke is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with broken ribs sustained in the clash.

In other MRP findings, Essendon’s Conor McKenna can accept a one game ban for making forceful front-on conduct on Adelaide’s Riley Knight.

Giant Toby Greene can accept a $1000 fine for striking Dan Houston and West Coast forward Mark LeCras can accept a $1000 fine for rough conduct on Aliir Aliir.
