THE Fremantle Dockers have been fined for a uniform bungle during their round three AFLW draw with GWS.

The Dockers wore their white jersey and shorts after travelling with the wrong gear from Perth to Blacktown for the match.

It meant both sides were playing in predominantly white strips.

In a statement, AFL ground operations manager Jennie Loughnan said the Dockers had received a sanction of $10,000 with $5000 suspended for player uniform breaches.

In good news, Ashley Sharp was named an AFL Rising Star nominee for her three-goal game against the Giants.

The 19-year-old utility was picked up from Swan Districts with selection 20 in the 2016 women’s draft.
