Is that the game Joel Bowden kicks a clutch goal to win it just before the siren sounds?

Bowden was my favourite player back then (along with Cogs). Supremely talented.

I'd say so, he's been shifted forward has kicked 3 goals. It's been a great last quarter, 4 goals down at 3/4 time and now in front.

Yes you were spot on, Bowden got hit up by the another Territorian, Richard Tambling.

If people haven't seen / can't remember this game, do yourself a favour and get a look at it.

At the game I thought time was out for us to get up when Sherman kicked the goal that put the Lions up by a couple.

The play that followed Kel Moore's excellent contested mark deep in defence then involved elite decision making and disposal from McMahon, Sugar Johnson, White, Tambling and Bowden to put us back in front was exhilarating. The expressions on people in the crowd are brilliant!

If you only have time to watch the last five minutes... enjoy.

Thanks 8, just watched it.
Couldn’t cope with a finish like that tonight.
Even then the Lions had the yips.

I wonder who Tambling was trying to kick it to then ? :))
Harsh! :p

Tambling was a very good football who struggled with the expectations of being a high draft pick.

I'd like to think history will judge him on the skill he had and not the massive expectations we placed upon him.

His hard running to receive then pin point the kick to Bowden at the end of this game was magnificent.

Thanks N8. Kel Moore, Thursfield and Lukey McGuane!!! Great stuff. Campo putting on a heap of pressure. Joel bowden one of my favourite all-time players along with Richo. Loved a lot of guys in this team, and always felt sorry for poor Richard Tambling (our draft decisions not his blame).

But same umpiring - how about the non-deision to Richo with Lion opponent arms around his torso, back to the ball pushing front-on into him!!

Yeah, at times he really showed his talent but couldn't maintain it. One wonders how much better he could have been if he'd come up through our current development environment.

We killed a lot of talent back in those days.

It was said as a bit of a joke throughout his career , however I think been drafted before Buddy really effected him mentally, poor bloke kicks 4 in a qtr against the Eagles and Buddy comes out the next day and kicks 5 in a qtr . I think his reputation as a junior was hightented due to it been a very ordinary draft year. Handy 100 gamer is how I’d describe Richie

Yes it was a great passage of play, and Bowden as cool as a cucumber, slotted it. Joel was a bit of a whipping boy to some, I don't know why, he was very good player.

Jaysus, thats got to be a worry for all AFL players let alone boxers and rugby players. As stated in the article it doesn't even seem to be related to outright concussions but sub concussive head blows.

Hopefully this pushes the AFL to be non-negotiable on head-knocks. How danger got off amazes me
