AFL players caught up in punch-up outside strip club

Two Richmond players have been caught up in a fight outside a Gold Coast strip club.

The Courier-Mail has been told the two players, Sydney Stack and Callum Coleman-Jones were involved in an altercation last night after being evicted from Hollywood Showgirls on the glitter strip's Orchid Ave.

It is understood police were called, with the fight occurring just metres from the police station.

Hundreds of AFL players, families and officials have relocated to Queensland to keep the season going away from Melbourne's coronavirus outbreak.

Players are required to live in a "bubble".

It comes as Brisbane has just been announced as the venue for this year's AFL grand final amid controversy over the number of people allowed into the state.
