Richmond and Port Adelaide have been fined by the AFL for failing to advise drug testers of player whereabouts.

The Tigers have been fined $5000 after cancelling a scheduled training session and not advising the AFL or the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA).

And Port have copped a $2000 fine for not immediately notifying the league and ASADA that an ill player would be missing a training session.

The fines were announced by the AFL on Monday.

"AFL players may be tested 365 days of the year for WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) prohibited drugs," the AFL said in a statement.

"Under the operation of the AFL's code with ASADA it is the club that is sanctioned for the failure to provide complete up-to-date whereabouts information at all times for testing purposes."
