WA government clears West Coast Eagles, Fremantle Dockers for full training


West Coast and Fremantle will be allowed full contact AFL training in Western Australia before relocating to a Queensland-based quarantine hub.

WA premier Mark McGowan on Thursday confirmed the Eagles and Dockers will be granted access to club facilities from May 18, with full training permitted seven days later.

But McGowan is not backing down on a refusal to grant exemptions for the clubs to fly in and out of the state for games, forcing the teams to temporarily shift their operations in order for the AFL season to resume.
