The AFL has confirmed Swans player Elijah Taylor will be suspended for the remainder of the season for breaching the AFL return to play protocols plus the WA COVID-19 quarantine directions.


According to the league statement Taylor’s partner entered the Swans accommodation without clearance to do so.


The Swans will also be significantly lighter in the pocket, fined $50,000 with half of that amount suspended.


Taylor has played just 4 games this season and is a product of the Perth Demons. The Swans selected the silky player at pick 36 at the 2019 AFL Draft.
