Sydney football manager Tom Harley spoke to 3AW before the game.
Harley said Michael Talia was ‘unbelievably disappointed’ in himself after being arrested after allegedly being caught with drugs early in the week.
He said it was ‘highly unlikely’ that Sydney would invite a rival player to tour the club’s facilities during the season.

The big story overnight was not on the field, but at Steven Dank’s house.
Shots were fired at the former Bomber sports scientist’s house early this morning, leaving Dank in hospital.
It seems an eternity ago that Carlton was 6-5 and dreaming of an unlikely finals berth.
The Blues have since lost five in a row, and the tasks don’t get much easier. Sydney at the SCG is about as tough a proposition as the AFL has at the moment.
The Swans dropped out of the top four after their devastating loss to Hawthorn on Thursday, so they’ll be in the mood to bounce back hard.
