The AFL community has been been rocked this morning with news breaking that North Melbourne player Majak Daw has been charged with three counts of sexual assault.

The charges relate back to an alleged incident in 2007, before Daw had been recruited by the Kangaroos.

The North Melbourne Football Club have released a statement this morning stating that they will continue to support Daw and will continue to be available for AFL and VFL selection.


The North Melbourne Football Club can confirm Majak Daw has been charged by Victoria Police in relation to an alleged sexual offence in 2007.

The club respects the integrity of the legal process and asks the right to privacy of all involved be respected.

This is the subject of an ongoing legal proceeding and it is not appropriate for Majak or North Melbourne to make any comment.
