The AFL says it has been in contact with WA Police over “extremely serious” allegations made on social media about Sydney Swans player Elijah Taylor.

The allegations were made on Saturday night by the woman who was part of the rookie’s COVID-19 protocol breach.

An Instagram post containing the allegations was removed.

On Sunday the AFL said it had been in contact with local law enforcement and would “continue to provide support and assistance for all”.

Taylor’s management said it was aware of the allegations, but given the sensitivity for those involved would not be commenting further.

WA-born Taylor, 19, was suspended for the remainder of the AFL season after sneaking his partner into the club’s Perth quarantine hub last month.

The Swans were sanctioned $50,000 for the breach, with $25,000 of that amount suspended.

Taylor remained in Perth after the protocol breach to be with family, while the Swans moved to a new hub in Cairns to finish the season.

Taylor made his debut for Sydney in round seven after he was recruited from Perth in the WAFL with pick 36 in last year’s AFL draft.
