Another Bombers bombshell

It’s become the never ending soap opera.

Essendon Football Club has been charged with two breaches of the OHS Act 2004 by Worksafe Victoria in relation to its supplements program from 2011/12.



The AFLPA has responded to the charges with a brief statement through Legal Counsel Brett Murphy.


"We are aware of the charges laid by Worksafe Victoria, and have liaised with both Worksafe and EFC throughout the investigation."


"Given this matter is now before the courts, we are not in a position to provide any further comment." 

The charges come a week before the start of WADA’s appeal in the Court of Arbitration for Sport against 34 past and present Bombers players.

The AFL was also under investigation for alleged breaches but Worksafe decided not to lay charges against the governing body.
