The West Coast Eagle has been formally handed a twoyear backdated suspension without appeal, which could see him make his AFL return in the finals this year. Rioli last played for the Eagles 18 months ago in the elimination final against Essendon on September 5, 2019. The 25-year-old was orig Rioli cleared to return for Eagles this season inally suspended for producing an adverse analytical finding for urine substitution on August 20 of the same year. With a maximum penalty of a four-year ban for tampering with a urine sample, the small forward was pleased to see the potential ban halved. I am very relieved that this long process has now ended, Rioli said. The stress of waiting for the outcome over a long period of time has been difficult for me and my family. I realise I have done wrong things and I have learned from it. I am sorry for letting people down. I am looking forward to putting all this behind me and playing footy again soon. I would also like to thank David Grace QC, West Coast Eagles football club, my management and the AFLPA for their support throughout this process. The Eagles confirmed their star forward would be eligible to return to training from June 20. The tribunal found that due to there being substantial delay in the hearing process not attributable to Willie (but rather attributable to ASADA/ SIA) the period of ineligibility should be backdated to 20 Au gust 2019 (being the date of the first sample collection) as provided for in the Code, the West Coast Eagles said in a club statement. Willie will be permitted to return to training from 20 June, 2021 (two months before the expiry of the period of ineligibility) and be eligible to play for the West Coast Eagles or in any AFL affiliated competitions from 20 August, 2021. While the process in this matter has been long, it has been thorough. The AFLPA and West Coast are comfortable that Willie received a fair hearing. NATHANIEL CHAMBERS Eagle Willie Rioli Jr could play again this year.
