AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has defended the league’s response to a pre-season camp in 2018 that traumatised Indigenous icon Eddie Betts.

Speaking on 3AW, McLachlan said there were ‘challenges’ in the investigation that followed.

The outgoing league chief executive said there were “disgraceful things done” to players on the camp, but investigations had to prove laws or rules had been broken.

“That is a challenging one, to deal with that part,” he said.

McLachlan denied there had been a lack of action from the AFL since the revelations emerged.

“Our response has been to make dramatic changes. Every camp has to be signed off by the AFL, to make sure we protect the physical and mental wellbeing of all the participants,” he said.
