"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"

Rickman on the Footscray half forward line looks dangerous, a long kick over the head of Beasley that's great play by Rickman and a tremendous goal for the bulldogs.

Rod MacPherson now has a quick look, screws one back, it will bounce through, what a marvelous goal, he went for it that was the most important thing, he tried it and it came off
