Port defend handling of Impey hit-and-run

The leadership group of AFL club Port Adelaide has defended its handling of Jarman Impey’s hit-and-run case, saying the defender’s wellbeing is their prime concern.

Impey and teammate Aidyn Johnson have both been fined $5000 by the club and banned from selection for the opening round of next year’s premiership season after being involved in hit-and-run incidents on December 3.

“The club has obviously handed down some sanctions but at the same time Jars is a kid that has been through some tough stuff and the club has really wrapped their arms around him,” Tom Jonas, a member of Port’s leadership group, told reporters on Wednesday.
