Two more AFL players are in hot water as an investigation begins into whether they breached the league’s COVID-19 protocols.

AFL Media reports Port Adelaide duo Dan Houston and Peter Ladhams are being looked at after allegedly entertaining visitors at Ladhams’ home after the Power’s round 10 win against the Western Bulldogs on August 3.

Houston and Ladhams played in both of Port’s games against Richmond and Geelong since that date.

The pair were reportedly absent from training today and are expected to miss the Power’s game against Hawthorn on Saturday afternoon.

Port has already had one of its players suspended for a breach this season when Ollie Wines conducted an interview with a TV crew at his home.


South Australians are allowed to have groups of 10 guests in their homes but the rules are different for AFL players who are banned from inviting visitors around.

Sydney became the 13th club to commit a COVID-19 breach when younster Elijah Taylor invited his girlfriend into the Swans’ Perth isolation bubble.
