GWS Giants Matt De Boer stands by Cameron after five match ban

GIANTS forward Jeremy Cameron has been suspended for five weeks by the AFL tribunal.

Cameron fronted the tribunal in Melbourne on Tuesday night and pleaded not guilty to intentionally striking Brisbane’s Harris Andrews, with the club arguing that the incident should be graded as careless.

The tribunal panel consisting of chair Ross Howie, Jason Johnson, David Neitz and Shane Wakelin deliberated for over 30 minutes before settling of intentional conduct and handing down the lengthy ban.

John and Beau spoke with team mate Matt De Boer who said that he will stand behind Cameron and it is a loss to the team..

Following the 90-minute hearing, Cameron was quick to apologise to the young Lion.

“I didn’t mean to hurt Harris. Unfortunately, I did and I’m very sorry for that and I hope to get backs to playing football very soon,” said Cameron.

“I think it was a fair hearing and my main concern at the moment is around Harris and his family.

“I’m sure it caused a lot of stress over the past few days and, like I said, I’m looking forward to seeing him back on the field where he belongs.”
