Four clubs have been reportedly sanctioned by the AFL for not updating the league on their players’ post-season whereabouts.
According to AFL.com.au’s Mitch Cleary, Carlton ($10,000), Melbourne ($5000), Richmond ($2500) and the Western Bulldogs ($2500) were all fined for failing to disclose the exact location of their players to enable out-of-competition drug testing.
The clubs breached the AFL’s drug testing code in conjunction with ASADA (Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority).
A phone app is available for players to download so clubs can track where they are during the off-season.
The Tigers were also fined in December, 2017 for a similar breach.
