Hot Breakfast chief footy reporter Tom Browne says that Luke McDonald’s covid-related gesture to Conor McKenna has been cleared by the AFL.
“Some common sense, Eddie, this morning, Luke McDonald, who’s been in good form as a North defender did gesture to Conor McKenna… sort of making a reference to sneezing,” Browne said.
“[He was] obviously referring to the fact that McKenna did have covid, which is no fault of his own.
“Luke McDonald apologised to McKenna yesterday, apologised publicly.
“Rhyce Shaw, the North coach, touched on the fact that from his perspective he thought it was case closed.
“The AFL have concluded it’s not really the spirit of the game but in light of everyone handling the matter really appropriately including Luke, that there will be no sanction or anything further.”
