Richmond Beat Sydney Swans 101-100 On Kick After The Siren

One of Australian Rules Football’s many byzantine rules is that a player awarded a mark or a free kick as time expires may take a kick after the buzzer. Rarely, this kick can decide a game—but it did this morning as Richmond defeated Sydney Swans 101-100 thanks to Sam Lloyd’s perfect goal.

It’s the first time a goal after the siren has been scored to win in three years, and it broke a six-game losing streak for Richmond.
