A couple of comments about yarn of the month 11 (and previous Kelly entry)

Slight error in that the match the guy talks about is not the one that Noel Kelly was sent off in the quickest time on record, although the story I am sure is true as Noel did drink at the Time and Tide for years and did get sent off pretty early in quite a few games.

The match where he was sent off in record time was against New Zealand at the SCG.

The Kiwis kicked off, the ball is gathered by Johnny King and Robyn Orchard (NZ) belts him with a crushing coat hanger. Noel marches up to Orchard and hits him on the chin with one of his best ever lefts. He got his marching orders on the spot.

Two funny things about it are that on the ABC footage, the commentator (Norman May I think) is reading the names of the players that are still showing on the screen as all this happens and actually stops at about number 9 and says "hang on, what's going on here, Noel Kelly has been sent off" before he even finished reading out the team.

Secondly, Noel had organised some tickets to the members stand at the SCG for this match for a couple of his mates that had come down from Queensland to watch him play. The blokes had got stuck at the Captain Cook Hotel, Moore Park (as you do) and made their way into the members trying to look inconspicuous about 10 minutes after kick off only to find Noel sitting there waiting for them !

all the best
Paul
