Guilty but no ban for Blair chicken wing
Blair pleaded guilty to the charge of contrary conduct in applying unnecessary pressure to Ennis's arm and he has been named to start for premiers Melbourne in Friday night's clash with fellow 2007 grand finalists Manly at Olympic Park.
Blair, who became the first player charged over the controversial tackling style, will now have 93 carry over points on his record for the next two years.
The chicken wing tackle involves wrenching an attacking player's arm behind his back.
