West Coast merchant recruit Zac Langdon accidentally violated COVID-19 rules in Western Australia after the club sent fitness equipment home.
Langdon joined the Eagles in the trading period after a 31-match stint with Greater Western Sydney. The Eagles website confirmed that the 25-year-old had been the center of an “accidental” violation.
The club announced that they had sent a treadmill to the Perth property where Langdon was isolating, where it was taken by the delivery company through the property to an outdoor patio in violation of its quarantine protocols.

“Langdon was subsequently tested and found to be COVID-free,” said the club’s statement.
“The delivery personnel were also isolated but were released to go back to work. The club apologizes to the state for this accidental violation. “
West Coast parted ways with Pick 54 to bring Langdon over, and the elite runner was dying to return to WA.
“The West Coast Eagles became aware of an incident that resulted in an accidental violation of WA quarantine protocols,” the statement said.
“The club has arranged for a treadmill to be delivered to the property in Perth where recruit Zac Langdon is isolating.
“Unfortunately, the delivery company brought the treadmill through Langdon’s residence to an outside terrace.
“Langdon was then tested and found to be COVID-free. Delivery personnel were also isolated but were released to return to work.
“The club apologizes to the state for this accidental violation.”
