AFL investigating Fasolo for incident

Collingwood forward Alex Fasolo could find out on Tuesday whether he faces AFL punishment for an incident during last Friday night’s pre-season match.

Television footage during the second quarter showed Fasolo apparently urinating into a cup while on the interchange bench.

Fasolo tried to be discreet, putting a towel over his lap.

But AFL rules forbid players urinating anywhere but in a toilet during matches.

The redevelopment of Simonds Stadium meant Collingwood’s changerooms were on the other side of the ground to the bench.

The AFL website reported that Collingwood had access to Geelong’s VFL changerooms, located in a forward pocket, but the Magpies apparently were unsure whether they had access.

Rugby league’s Russell Packer was caught relieving himself in his shorts, on the field, during a 2013 NRL game.

Packer was fined $15,000 for the indiscretion.

Former Hawthorn forward Mark Williams was reported for misconduct in 2008 after relieving himself before the start of a VFL match.

Fasolo booted five goals to go with 19 disposals and seven marks in the win over Geelong.
