AFLW Tiger tests positive for COVID-19

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.
