AFLW: Magpie D'Arcy reported for kicking

AFLW: Key moments in Round 1 loss Review the biggest plays and turning points in Collingwood's round one AFL Women's loss to Carlton at IKON Park.

Collingwood forward Sarah D'Arcy has been reported for kicking Carlton opponent Sarah Hosking in Friday night's AFLW season opener at Ikon Park.

D'Arcy's name went in the umpire's book after lashing out with her leg in frustration after Hosking tried to stand the mark.

The 26-year-old took an intercept mark and was set to lineup for goal until the umpire reversed the ball and handed the ball to Hosking.

Hosking got to her feet and took her kick and did not appear to be injured following the incident.

After the match, Hosking was asked about her opinion on the incident.

"You don't want that sort of stuff to happen but we'll leave it up to the umpires and the Match Review (Panel) to deal with that," she told Channel Seven.

Asked about the force involved in the contact, Hosking said it was not a pleasant feeling.

"Yeah, look it hurt I'm not going to lie," Hosking said.

"I'm just glad I'm not a boy, that's for sure. I'm sure I'll have a little bit of a bruise later."

The incident will act as a challenging first case for newly appointed Match Review Officer, and long-time MRP member, Michael Christian.
