Sydney Swans forward Will Hayward has been offered a $1,500 fine for misconduct against Shane Savage in Saturday night's win over St Kilda.

Hayward was charged by the Match Review Officer for misconduct for contact with Savage during the third quarter. 

Based on the available evidence and a medical report from the St Kilda Football Club, the incident was classified as misconduct.

A first offence for misconduct draws a $2500 sanction.

Hayward can accept a $1500 sanction with an early plea.
