A Richmond AFLW player has tested positive for COVID-19.
The Tigers confirmed a player had returned a positive result from a pre-training rapid antigen test on Saturday.
Training did not occur that day as a result and Richmond’s AFLW squad was isolating and awaiting directions from Victoria’s Department of Health as to the duration of their self-quarantine period.
The player also received a positive P-C-R test this morning.
The only previous reported incidence of an AFL or AFLW player returning a positive COVID-19 test was former Essendon player Conor McKenna in June 2020.
The AFLW season is due to get underway on January 6.
More to come.
