There has been confusion across social media following the MRP ruling of Dayne Zorko's striking incident from the weekend.

The Lions gun was charged with a 1-week suspension following his hit to the stomach of Carlton's Lachie Plowman.

Zorko's hit was classified as intentional and medium impact - but fans believe the ruling is inconsistent with previous incidents.

Two weeks ago, the Richmond skipper was given a $1,500 fine for a strike in their loss to St Kilda.

Here are the two incidents side-by-side:
