SANFL Media Statement

MEDIA STATEMENT FROM SANFL

April 25, 2018

SANFL has been advised today that the AFL has completed an investigation into the behaviour of Port Adelaide listed-player Sam Powell-Pepper.

The AFL has concluded that Powell-Pepper engaged in behaviour unbecoming an AFL player. The AFL imposed a three game sanction, two of which have already been served, from the AFL competition but deemed that Powell-Pepper is available for SANFL selection.

When a player breaches the laws of the game because of on-field incident, the match penalty for the player applies to all competitions. However, matters of disciplinary sanction, such as inappropriate off-field behaviour, are not subject to the same requirement.

Powell-Pepper is therefore available for selection and will play in today’s grand final re-match at Peter Motley Oval.

SANFL was not consulted by the AFL and was informed of this outcome only today. As a consequence of these circumstances, SANFL will be reviewing its regulations with regards to the application of disciplinary sanction for AFL-listed players and how that impacts on its State League competition.

Someone stuffed up. Sounds complete arrogance from the AFL that they can ban a player from AFL matches but he is OK to play in other comps.

Pretty easy regulation to make. "A player suspended in the AFL is ineligible to play in the SANFL until that suspension has been served."

Or, in more broad terms (to include Ammos) 'A player suspended in any league is ineligible to play in this league, and any other league, until that suspension has been served'.
