GWS recruiter Paul Brodie banned over AFL bet

Greater Western Sydney recruiter Paul Brodie has resigned immediately after being caught betting on a game the Giants played in.

Brodie has been banned for 13 months after the AFL revealed he placed a $100 multi on five matches in round 19 last season.

In a statement, Brodie said he had made a terrible mistake.

‘I have made a mistake which has let the club down, let down my family and friends, and let myself down,’ the statement read.

‘I am very sorry for the lack of respect I have shown for the rules and principles that maintain the integrity of our game.

‘I will accept whatever sanction is imposed on me as an appropriate penalty. I have learned a serious lesson and hope others can also learn from my mistake.’ 

The highly-regarded recruiter had recently been linked with a move to Carlton.

His ban expires on December 1, 2016.
