Tigers, Dogs fined over player whereabouts

RICHMOND and the Western Bulldogs have both been fined for not giving the AFL relevant information about their players' post-season holiday plans. 

Clubs must give details of player whereabouts so they can be drug tested.

The reigning premiers were fined a total of $7500 after failing to provide up-to-date information on a player's off-season travel. That offence incurred a $2500 penalty, while the Tigers were fined a further $5000 from a suspended sanction arising from a previous rules breach in September.

Richmond will now carry a $7500 suspended fine for the next 12 months.

The Western Bulldogs, which won the 2016 flag, were fined $3000 for not immediately telling the AFL of a player's travel plans.
