Following Josh Carr’s breach of WA government directions orders in July, the club has been fined $25,000 by the AFL with $12,500 suspended.

Carr has also been handed a four game suspension by the AFL, with two games already served in rounds 20 and 21 this year when Carr was stood down from his duties for two weeks.

The remaining two games of the AFL sanction will be served in rounds one and two of the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership Season. 

In addition to the $6000 court fine already received from WA Police, Carr has agreed to pay the $12,500 fine imposed on the Club by the AFL.

The AFL fine will be included in Fremantle’s 2021 soft cap.

Fremantle CEO Simon Garlick said the AFL’s decision to impose a sanction reflected the seriousness of Carr’s breach of the directions orders and the potential to harm the strong working relationship the AFL and the Club has with WA police and the State Government.

“The level of cooperation and understanding among all parties during this season and last year is the reason we were able to keep playing,” Garlick said.

“It is not something we take for granted, and nor is the broader obligation the Club and the AFL has to the community to do the right thing.
“Josh has demonstrated clear remorse for his actions, and as a highly valued member of staff, will continue to have the support of the Club.”
