Longwood and Avenel will sit down and discuss an alleged racial vilification incident following a Kyabram District Football League tribunal recommendation.OLIVER CAFFREY June 2, 2014 3:05am
Longwood and Avenel will go ahead with mediation after a Kyabram District Football League independent tribunal recommendation on Friday night.
Avenel player Kasey Duncan fronted the tribunal to see if he would have to face an unbecoming conduct charge.
The hearing was a result of an alleged racial vilification incident in a senior game between Longwood and Avenel at Longwood Recreation Reserve on April 26.
Northern Territory recruit Cosmos Munkara was allegedly called a ‘‘dirty black witchetty grub’’ during the round four clash.
Longwood requested a formal investigation into the incident two days after the game.
An independent AFL Victoria investigator reviewed the incident and recommended the case be heard at the tribunal.
Avenel has denied Munkara was racially abused.
League president Greg Watson said the tribunal recommended the two clubs be brought together to discuss the incident.
Watson said the league would make no further comment on the matter until after the incident had been finalised.
If the mediation sessions do not work out, then the case will possibly again go before the tribunal.
Longwood president Justin Fry said the club would look forward to working through the matter with Avenel.
‘‘It will be good to talk it through with them, I think all players know that we don’t stand for it, but I’m sure we’ll get a resolution when we come together,’’ Fry said.
