Swan addressed the playing group on Wednesday to express his regret.

"It was there for all to see, the state that he'd come to the club in," said Buckley, before adding: "To Swanny's credit, he was very remorseful from the start and understandably embarrassed about the situation he'd put himself in and the situation he had put the club in."

Buckley did reveal Swan had been drinking before and after he was seen at the Hotel Barkly drinking water.

"They don't hand those things out too easily, you don't need too much to go wrong."

"From what I gather Swanny was out the other night and the club decided that was it, two weeks is the suspension."

"If everyone puts their hand up and pledges, takes the pledge and it's one in all in, then it's one in all in."
