Kicks after the siren in Australian rules football

In Australian rules football, if a player takes a mark or is awarded a free kick shortly before the siren sounds to end a quarter, the player is allowed to take the kick after the siren. Often, the result of this kick is of little consequence, but if the player is within range of goal, any score will count towards the final result.

Below is a list of occasions where game results have been decided by set shots taken after the final siren. These are highly memorable and often go down in football folklore.

Miscellaneous

There have been some cases of a kick after the siren which cannot be properly classified into one of the above tables due to extraordinary circumstances surrounding the outcomes of the games.

Player Competition Team Opponent Year Score Outcome Details
1 Considine VFA North Melbourne Footscray 1920 51–56
(No result)
No kick North Melbourne trailed 51–56 in the semi-final, and Considine had a shot after the bell from 30yds out. Fans stormed onto the field, and prevented Considine from taking his kick. The players eventually left the field, the match was declared a no result and a replay was held the next week.[84]
2 David Collins Tasmanian State Premiership North Hobart (TANFL) Wynyard (NWFU) 1967 91–92
(No result)
No kick North Hobart trailed 91–92, and Collins had a shot after the siren from 20m out. Home-team Wynyard fans stormed onto the field, and prevented Collins from taking his kick right up until the Wynyard fans had taken down the goalposts, making a set shot impossible. Collins never got to take his kick, the match was declared a no result and the 1967 state premiership was withheld. For more details, see 1967 Tasmanian State Premiership Final.
3 Steven Baker AFL St Kilda Fremantle 2006 94–94
amended to
93–94
(Fremantle win)
Behind, but withdrawn on review In a passage of play that occurred after the siren sounded inaudibly, Baker scored a behind to tie the game, and received an illegal bump. He elected to cancel the behind and take a set-shot, which (with the umpires having now heard the siren) was a true after-the-siren kick. He scored another behind, drawing the scores level 94–94. However, four days later, Fremantle successfully challenged to have the result of the game amended to 94–93, reflecting the scoreline when the siren originally sounded. This decision cancelled Baker's kick. For more details see AFL siren controversy, 2006
