West Coast coach Adam Simpson says he’s “furious” after the club found out some players went to a Perth nightclub on Saturday.

The Eagles are now grappling with a COVID-19 outbreak at the club, with Simpson unable to coach the battling club this week under the AFL’s health and safety protocols.

The Eagles released a statement on Friday afternoon about the situation.

The West Coast Eagles are aware that some players attended a Leederville nightclub last Saturday and are continuing to investigate the matter.

Given the current environment and the peak in COVID-19 cases in Perth the club is devastated that some players opted to go out publicly as they have done.

Senior coach Adam Simpson, in quarantine under AFL Health and Safety Protocols, said: ā€œI am furious and disappointed with the actions of these players.ā€.

The club has gone to great lengths in educating the players around the need to adhere to club guidelines and it is beyond disappointing that they have put themselves in this situation.

It is particularly disheartening given the strain on player availability at this stage of the season.

At the earliest opportunity the club will meet with the players concerned.
