Parkes vs Dubbo - Points to be removed

A registration breach will see four premiership points removed from the Dubbo Demons Mens side for the 2018 season.

The breach occurred when a player transfer was not correctly loaded in the player database for the Round 5 match (May 12) against Parkes at Parkes. The match was a win for the Dubbo side.

A misunderstanding between the DAFC and the transferring player meant that neither party were aware of the breach until notified by AFL Central West.

The league issued an initial breach notice and allowed the club to lodge an appeal, which was dismissed last week by AFL NSW/ACT.

It is important to note that the matter was clerical and not deliberate. Upon an internal club investigation, it was found that no player or volunteer sought to seek advantage or deceive the league and its associated clubs for this match or any other this season. It was simply a heartbreaking oversight.

However, the DAFC has reviewed all registration matters in consultation with the league and we thank them for their support during the matter.

The penalty is
- A forfeit recorded
- Removal of four (4) premiership points
- A score of 0-100 awarded to Parkes Panthers

All other matches are unaffected, with the Demons to now sit at eight premiership points for the season from this weekend, with eight games to go and plenty of fire in the squad.
