Tigers recruit Edwards avoids AFL ban
17:19 AEST Tue Dec 11 2012

Richmond recruit Aaron Edwards has avoided suspension from the AFL club over an alcohol-fuelled incident in October.

Just two days after being traded to his third AFL club, the 28-year-old former West Coast and North Melbourne forward was locked up by Melbourne police and fined for being drunk in a public place.

Tigers coach Damien Hardwick said at the time Edwards could expect to learn a "pretty harsh lesson" when the leadership group got together to decide a penalty.

But the club's leaders have handed the 28-year-old forward only a suspended two-week ban.

Football manager Craig Cameron said Edwards' attitude could not be questioned since he had started pre-season training with the Tigers.
