Following further discussions with the North Melbourne leadership group and interim coach Rhyce Shaw, Taylor Garner has accepted the following outcomes, after failing to meet club standards and expectations during a weekend away in Sydney.

Taylor will:
- Not be available for AFL selection for a further three weeks – he will continue to play and train with the VFL
- Undertake one month full-time work outside of the club
- Make a $5,000 donation to charity

As the matter in question is still under investigation by NSW police, the club cannot make any specific comment.
