Tarryn Thomas set for AFL Integrity Unit meeting

Jarred Cross -

North Melbourne player Tarryn Thomas is expected to speak with the AFL Integrity Unit Monday, almost two weeks on from being summoned to league's offices following fresh allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards women.

The 23-year-old was due to front the unit for an interview in the days following the latest allegations surfacing before the meeting was delayed with Thomas' legal representatives unavailable at the time.

According to reports, Thomas arrived at AFL headquarters on Monday.

The 2018 draft no.8 pick has not trained at Arden Street since North were notified of an AFL investigation into the complaints against him.

It is understood no police or a criminal investigation have been involved in the alleged matter.

"North Melbourne received notification from the AFL Integrity Unit on Wednesday that Tarryn Thomas is under investigation following a new allegation of inappropriate behaviour," the Kangaroos said in a statement on January 17.

"The club is working through this information and is not in a position to make any further comment."

Thomas was twice stood down by North in 2023 amid allegations of serious inappropriate behaviour with a number of women.

He returned to the senior side via their VFL setup later in the year after engaging with behavioural and educational training set up by the club.

The fresh probe comes with Thomas' current contract set to expire at the end of the 2024 season.
