Australian Fed Cup captain and former world number eight, Alicia Molik, is reportedly one of the people who played tennis with Buckley and Sanderson.

"Both Buckley and Sanderson immediately reported the inadvertent breach to Collingwood officials when they realised they didn't have the appropriate approval to partake in the activity," the statement said.

AFL general counsel Andrew Dillon said the league appreciated Collingwood's self-reporting of the breach and had sanctioned them $50,000, half of which would be suspended.

"We note that tennis is an approved exercise activity however approved participants are limited to approved club staff, players, household members and immediate family," he said.

"Notwithstanding the inadvertent nature of this breach, it doesn't excuse the responsibility to abide by the protocols."

The sanction came a day after the AFL handed four clubs — Hawthorn, Carlton, North Melbourne and Richmond — fines totalling almost $200,000 for breaches of the league's COVID-19 protocols.

Buckley and Sanderson ask to pay fine

In a separate statement, Collingwood said Buckley and Sanderson had accepted responsibility for their actions and had asked to personally pay the effective $25,000 fine themselves.

"At the time, we believed we had followed and adhered to the protocols as required but after returning to the hotel and readdressing the circumstances it became crystal clear that we had breached the current AFL protocols," the pair were quoted as saying.

"The competition is asking its constituents to make great sacrifices for the show to go on and we have all accepted these for the long-term future of the industry and the privilege of participating within it."

Collingwood again on the wrong side of the AFL and its minions

  Collingwood again on the wrong side of the AFL and its minions What an absolute shock that there will be no sanction on Sydney’s Sam Wicks for wearing metal-studded boots and seriously injuring Collingwood young gun Isaac Quaynor. I just wonder what the penalty would’ve been had it been Quaynor in the metal boots and Wicks who was injured. I’m sure there would’ve been sanctions. Journalists would’ve clamoured for them. The likes of Mark Robinson and Caroline Wilson would’ve used their various platforms to implore that the league impose strict penalties to ensure that this would never, ever happen again. Nope. Nothing (as of yet) from them.

The club's chief executive Mark Anderson said the breach was a "very disappointing reminder" of the vigilance required to keep the competition running.

"Our game has been granted the right to continue to play by governments around the country," he said.

"In exchange for that right, we simply must do all that we can to protect the health of our players, staff and the communities in which we are living and playing.

"As a club, we apologise, vow to be better and fully accept the penalty."

Collingwood president Eddie McGuire has not made a public statement about the sanction handed to the club.

But he told Fox Footy on Friday night — when speaking after the AFL had earlier penalised the Hawks, Blues, Kangaroos and Tigers — fines should be handed out to individuals found to have breached the league's COVID-19 protocols.

"I think the people who breach the protocols should be fined personally, to be honest," McGuire said.

"You can get to the clubs in due course, I think the AFL's set it out. But I think it's got to be a personal fine."
