Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In Australian rules football, if a player takes a mark or is awarded a free kick before or as the siren sounds, the player is allowed to take the kick. Often, the result of this kick is of little consequence, but if the player is within range of goal, any score will count towards the final result. Below is a list of occasions where game results have been decided by free kicks, set shots or goals on the run after the final siren. These are highly memorable and often go down in football folklore. North Hobart trailed 91-92, and Collins had a shot after the siren from 20m out, when home-team Wynyard fans stormed onto the field. Police tried for more than ten minutes to clear a pathway for Collins to take his kick, but by this time the Wynyard fans had taken down the goalposts, making a set shot impossible. Collins never got to take his kick, the match was declared a no result and the 1967 state premiership was withheld. For more details, see 1967 Tasmanian State Premiership Final.show more
