The AFL has joined Geelong's Chris Scott in rejecting growing calls for a send-off rule to be brought in after Tom Stewart's shocking hit on Dion Prestia - even as the Cats coach admitted the wrong team will benefit from whatever penalty his defender cops.

The Richmond gun was forced off the field after being left dazed and confused by the sickening shot in the first quarter of Saturday night's game at the MCG, while Stewart stayed on and took a crucial mark in his team's narrow win.

Calls for a red card grew swiftly after the game, but on Sunday an AFL spokesperson said: 'The send-off rule is not something that is being considered. Our position remains the same.'

Moment of impact: Stewart smashes into Prestia's face in an off-the-ball incident in the first quarter. The Cats defender stayed on the field and played a crucial role in their win
