Howe set for scrutiny over scuffle with Pendles

Highlights: Howe, Pendles scuffle Daniel Howe hits Scott Pendlebury in the face with his knee during a tussle

Hawthorn's Daniel Howe is set to come under the Match Review Officer's scrutiny after he appeared to knee Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury in the head during the second term at the MCG.

Pendlebury and Howe were tangling on the ground after a holding-the-ball free kick had been paid to Hawthorn's Jarman Impey for an earlier tackle, when Howe raised his knee and caught the Magpie skipper on the side of the head.
