Cotchin offers to pay Richmond fine for protocol breach

Richmond chief executive Brendon Gale says Tigers captain Trent Cotchin has offered to pay the fine which was dished out to the club after his wife breached AFL coronavirus protocols on the Gold Coast.

The Tigers were one of four clubs fined in recent days for contravening the AFL’s COVID-19 rules for players, staff and families based in AFL-financed hubs.

Cotchin’s wife Brooke breached the protocols by entering a beauty salon, leading to the Tigers being fined $45,000 of which $25,000 was suspended. Brooke posted about her visit to the salon on Instagram before deleting the post.

Gale tweeted on Sunday that the dual premiership captain had offered to cough up from his own pocket rather than members’ money going towards paying the fine.
