In imposing the penalties, the commission took into account the unintentional nature of the breach and honesty of the club during the investigation.

The Longwood Football Netball Club was fined $15,000 and coach Nick Brown suspended for 10 matches by the AFL Goulburn Murray Commission for a breach earlier this month.
