Intersting report from last nights SANFL game in Adelaide
Here is a part of article from todays Adelaide Advertiser about last nights SANFL game in Adelaide concerning Norths blunder in their game against Norwood. [quote]NORTH Adelaide pulled off one of the great fighting wins and probably the greatest technical blunder in the contemporary SANFL to roll a tough but poor-kicking Norwood by 15 points at The Parade last night. The Roosters almost nobbled their own hopes when two interchange players were ruled out of the contest at the first bounce because they had been named on the field on the official team sheet. Midfielder Tim Martin and ruckman Brett O'Hara could take no part in the match after North's hierarchy started them on the bench after naming them in the starting 18. That forced North coach Andrew Jarman to throw gutsy 192cm key defender Shane Schubert into the fray as a makeshift ruckman, leaving lofty Adam Cockshell (199cm), who kicked 2.3, and Robbie DeJongh (200cm, 3.0) free to dominate overhead in attack without any North defender able to counter their extreme height.[/quote] Full Article can be found here,22606,21675306-21543,00.html

Bloody hell! Hard to believe a club in the SANFL could make such a stupid mistake. Good work with the SA updates Robbo.

There was something in Inside Football about this incident as well.
