Brisbane Lions captain Dayne Beams loves the way Nick Robertson plays, but said the youngster would have to make smarter decisions when opponents got under his skin.
Robertson was a central figure in two controversial incidents after a headbutt on Richmond skipper Trent Cotchin that saw him reported.
Moments later, Robertson was on the end of a left-hand clip from Richmond superstar Dustin Martin that is also expected to draw attention from the Match Review Panel.
"He goes out and plays his role and lives our trademark probably better than anyone in our side," Beams said.
"We understand he's a little bit of a hot head and sometimes he probably does cross the line a little bit, and yesterday he might have regretted doing what he did.
"We'll have to see what the Match Review Panel come up with, but we don't want Nick to lose his aggression, we want him to make the right decision at the right time and yesterday he probably didn't make the right decision."
