NewsFixturesResultsLive ScoresLadderPodcastState of OriginAFLAFL trade period: Port Adelaide Power lodge Tom Rockliff paperworkFormer Brisbane skipper Tom Rockliff has been welcomed by Port Adelaide after the Power lodged free agency paperwork with the AFL.A Richmond Tigers star at the centre of the club’s topless photo scandal is under police investigation after the woman involved claimed she was a victim of revenge porn. 

“We’re committed to assisting police with any enquiries – should they be required – so at this stage it would be inappropriate to comment any further,” Gale told reporters.Though it is unclear when it was taken, the image emerged in the days following the Tigers’ defeat of the Adelaide Crows in the AFL Grand Final on September 30.

If what she has alleged took place – and certainly anyone who wants to has seen the photograph – then she has been violated and humiliated.
