AFL club reviews urged by WA Aboriginal Affairs Minister after Hawthorn racism allegations

WA Aboriginal Affairs Minister Tony Buti says all AFL clubs should conduct internal reviews into their treatment of Indigenous players in the wake of claims levelled at the Hawthorn Football Club.

The external review at Hawthorn includes claims that key figures at the club the separation of young First Nations players from their partners.

One player also alleges coaches at the Hawks pressured him and his partner to terminate a pregnancy and separate for the sake of the player’s career.
