AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has hit back at suggestions from David Koch the league “railroaded” Sam Powell-Pepper in an attempt to rebuild its own reputation with women following last year’s sex scandals.

The Port Adelaide president hit out at the league on Thursday after a three-game ban was handed to the young midfielder following an alcohol-fuelled incident at an Adelaide nightclub.

Koch said the league’s respect and responsibility policy left clubs “in the dark” and said the league was using Powell-Pepper to rebuild its own reputation after executives Simon Lethlean and Richard Simkiss were forced to resign following inappropriate relationships with younger staff members.

Speaking with Neil Mitchell, McLachlan said that wasn’t the case.

“I reject what David Koch says, unequivocally,” he told 3AW.
