"Alan Martin handballs over to Donald – they had a beautiful combination around the half back line picked up by Johnny Kerr best on ground in 54 Grand Final -effort by that player towards Gilmore. A stab pass by Gilmore a beautiful pass hits Jack Collins right on the chest."

"There goes Doug Reynolds once more this is a nice piece of football you will see him take a handball back here & eventually the ball bounces back into his arms & he puts it through on his left boot, we could do anything in the last quarter"

Very interesting to note that Beamish is off the ground for Footscray, he's been replaced by Charlie....Charlie.... Stewart from Shepparton who gets his big chance this afternoon on the half forward flank, Quarrell goes into the roving position in the forward pocket
