The AFL issued a “please explain” and received a letter of apology after a member of Richmond‘s AFLW team played in last week’s semi-finals with offensive language on her shoulder strapping.
Ahead of Richmond’s clash with North Melbourne, Jess Hosking had written on her shoulder tape “kill bitches”.
“Hosking was extremely remorseful and deeply disappointed in her actions,” read an AFL statement provided to Wide World of Sports.
“The AFL has since accepted a letter of apology from Jess and has issued an official warning to the club and Jess regarding the offensive language.”
The semi-finals saw North Melbourne defeat Richmond by 36 points and Adelaide beat Collingwood by 12 points.
