FORMER Brisbane Lions champion Luke Power has stepped down from the AFL's Laws of the Game Committee, due to his expanding commitments as a member of the GWS coaching staff.

Power, who played 282 games with the Lions and 20 with the Giants, joined the laws committee as a current-player representative during the 2010 season.

AFL acting general manager of football operations Gillon McLachlan said Power's coaching commitments at GWS did not allow him to continue in the role, now that he had retired from playing.
"The AFL is appreciative of Luke's contribution and wishes him the best in his coaching and mentoring role at the Giants with their young players," McLachlan said.
Power said he felt the views of current players would be well represented by recent appointment Beau Waters.
Waters joined the laws committee last month, having been a member of West Coast’s 2006 premiership side and was an All Australian for the first time in 2012.
The laws committee going forward will comprise; McLachlan (acting current chairman), Kevin Bartlett, Joel Bowden, Brett Burton, Leigh Matthews, Rowan Sawers, Michael Sexton, Beau Waters and Shane McCurry (secretary).
