Melbourne midfielder Brock McLean has been axed from Melbourne’s leadership group this afternoon after it became aware he was booked for speeding on the way home from the weekends NAB Challenge match against the Western Bulldogs in Bendigo.
It appears the McLean was driving the same hotted up V8 ute which got him banished from the car park at Trinity Grammar after he was caught doing burnouts.
McLean was also involved in bar-room incidents during the off-season while in both Greece and Germany.
“This is very disappointing for Brock, he is a highly valued member of the club and his training form has been excellent,” football manager Chris Connolly said in a statement.
“He is seen by the match committee to have outstanding leadership qualities, however this behavior was deemed by his peers to be unacceptable.”
Although McLean has been indefinably suspended from the leadership group he will still be available for selection in this weeks NAB Challenge match against North Melbourne at Casey Fields.
