Leschenault seamer Jacob Templeton is free to play in Saturday’s cut-throat semifinal against Colts at the Bunbury Recreation Ground after receiving a one match suspended sentence at the BDCA tribunal on Tuesday night.

Templeton was reported during last Saturday’s clash against Eaton for inappropriate and offensive language in the vicinity of a Bobtails player while he was batting.

Leschenault president Angelo D’Agostino confirmed steps would be taken to ensure future incidents were minimised.

“The club does not condone language like this — whether it be direct or indirect,” he said.

“We will be having a discussion with the players who are still playing. And we will be reiterating this message and stance to our whole playing group (all grades) at the start of next season.”

“There is no room for this type of behaviour in the game,” he said.
