Lyon supports AFL drug policy tweak

Fremantle coach Ross Lyon says he’s keen for the AFL to close any loopholes in the league’s illicit drugs policy.

The AFL is set to change its three-strikes drug policy in the wake of the Gold Coast Suns drugs drama.

“I really like the rehabilitation (aspect) of it,” Lyon said of the illicit drugs policy.

“But clearly there’s been some situations where it’s been abused – like the self reporting (to avoid a strike), which is a cause of concern to everybody.

“If you can tighten up the policy so that support and welfare aspect stays in, and you can limit the manipulation of it, I would suggest that would be good.”

The AFL future of Harley Bennell is under a cloud after he was caught up in the drugs drama engulfing the Suns.
