Richmond’s Sydney Stack pleads guilty to WA quarantine breach

Richmond player Sydney Stack has pleaded guilty to breaching Western Australia’s quarantine rules after he was issued a move-on notice by police at a Perth entertainment precinct when he was meant to be in self-isolation.

The Tiger was granted an exemption to return home to WA on December 10 to attend his grandfather’s funeral, however he was required to complete 14 days quarantine at a residence in Northam, the country town where he grew up.

The quarantine requirement was sparked by his Melbourne flight’s brief stopover in Adelaide, which was experiencing a COVID-19 outbreak at the time.

On Wednesday, the 20-year-old pleaded guilty in Perth Magistrates Court to one count of failing to comply with a direction under the Emergency Management Act after police issued him a move-on notice in Northbridge on December 19.
