After throwing a border early in the second semester, Zack Smith, a retiree from Harbor Row’s fellow Sands, tried to get rid of football but spilled it on the ground. To clear the loose ball, Harbor crashed into Isaac Heeney in Sydney, afflicting the swan on the ground.
The free kick was paid and the game continued.
In the commentary, the saint’s legend, Lee Montagna, called the contact “a little reckless.”
“He hurt Heaney,” Montagna said.
Christian classified the case as a first offense with a $ 3,000 sanction, but if he accepts an early plea, Herbrow’s accusation will be reduced by $ 1,000.
“Based on the available evidence, the case was rated as careless, less influential, and more in contact,” wrote Christian.
To make matters worse, Harbor was sent off late due to a shoulder injury, but after the last siren, Smith returned to the field to chair.
Before Saturday night, the Cairns-born defender hadn’t been featured at the AFL level since the fifth round. In total, he has played 192 times in the Sands and 70 more times in the Western Bulldogs, starting his career at the AFL in 2007.
“I was really lucky that the AFL football game gave me this opportunity to make my dreams come true and helped my family get off to a great start to life,” Harbor Law said earlier this month. Announced retirement.
“I am grateful to everyone who has played a major role in my career.
“I would like to thank my family, mom and dad, brothers, and the whole family for being in Cairns and in Mooroopna, Victoria.
“All my junior coaches, national coaches, Western Bulldog scrubs and players, Gold Coast Sands clubs and players, and everyone who participated in my journey.
“The main thing I wanted to do was run out of Sands colors and proudly represent my family, football clubs, and Gold Coast supporters.
“Thanks forever to the Gold Coast Sands for allowing me to play football here. I’m certainly a club supporter for a very long time and have their backs forever.”
After finding the rhythm in mid-2021, Sands once again responded to its reputation for falling towards the end of the season. The Gold Coast has lost five of the last six games, but after losing to Sydney on Saturday night, senior coach Stuart Dew said he wouldn’t be unemployed for another season without a footer in September. ..
“Our players are really confident that this is the group that sees it and sticks with it,” Dew said.
“That is the main message from all of us in the football club.
“Go back to work, take a break, reload, regenerate, continue to improve, and drive it.
“I feel like there is a great relationship between me and the players.
“As I said at the beginning, we see ourselves as the first group to commit, the first to collaborate, and the first to see through.”
