Melbourne became aware Bennell was drinking away from the club’s hub last night.

He was then not allowed to return to the hub as a precaution to prevent potentially infecting teammates.

The incident comes only weeks after Richmond pair Callum Coleman-Jones and Sydney Stack were sent home and suspended for 10 weeks after a fight outside a Gold Coast strip club.
