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.
