AFL boss gives his verdict on the score review controversy

AFL boss Gillon McLachlan says the correct decision was made in awarding Jack Higgins a mark on the goal line in last night’s season opener.

Higgins, making his return from serious brain surgery, was paid a mark after the video reviewer judged all of the ball had not crossed the line.

He kicked a goal.

The match ended in a draw.

“I thought it was a courageous decision … and I thought it was correct,” the league chief told Neil Mitchell.

“I looked at it again this morning, and I thought it was right.

“Good mark, good play.

“He’s a great story.”
