Griffith champion Mick Duncan has successfully appealed his three-game suspension for striking Jim Quinn Medallist Jayden Klemke.

Duncan had two games taken off his original sentence and will instead serve a one-game suspension at the start of next year.

The appeals panel found that Duncan was guilty of making forceful contact with Klemke in the preliminary final, but deemed his actions as careless, medium impact and high contact.

Duncan also had his suspension reduced by a further one game due to his record.

Duncan was originally suspended for three games by the AFL Riverina independent tribunal after being cited by Collingullie-Glenfield Park.
