Kane Cornes has his say on the AFL’s revamped drugs policy

Recently-retired Port Adelaide champion Kane Cornes says the AFL’s revamped illicit drugs policy is a step in the right direction but still doesn’t go far enough.

While ‘happy’ with changes announced today, Cornes told 3AW there was still one improvement he’d make.

‘I think they got it wrong with the first strike,’ Cornes explained on Sports Today.

‘I think the club needs to be notified after the first strike.

‘I think that’s the only mistake that they’ve made.

‘Just having the club doctor as the only one notified ? I think the CEO and coach should be notified after strike one.

‘Apart from that ? I think they’ve almost got it right.’

Cornes also went on to explain how anonymous hair-testing results created an ‘elephant in the room’ while he was playing with the Power.
