THE VFL investigated an incident that saw North Melbourne’s Majak Daw knocked out behind play in a practice match last week.

But it won’t be taking action against St Kilda’s Josh Bruce after inconclusive video failed to show anything untoward in the Werri-bee-Sandringham clash at Moorabbin last Saturday.

VFL state league and talent manager John Hook confirmed an investigation had been launched after an umpires report detailed Daw’s injury. But after looking at two different versions of video Hook insisted the VFL did not have enough evidence to take the matter any further.

“There was no formal complaint and we acted off an umpires report in trying to get to the bottom of the incident,” Hook said.

“There was a little bit of footage we have looked at, but we couldn’t really see anything other than the two of them bumping into each other.”

“On the video evidence we have before us, I couldn’t cite anyone on that.”

North Melbourne would not be drawn on the incident yesterday, saying it was in the hands of the VFL. The Kangaroos do not intend to take the matter further.
