ANFC Football Carnival - Sydney 1933

Overview of Matches

Although the final was a blow out, all the other games were great contests. Many games were only won in the final quarters and numerous injuries indicate the seriousness with which the players approached the matches.

South Australia v Western Australia – Opening Day Details

South Australia come from behind and win in the darkness.

The Age 3-Aug-1933 p3 by Forward wrote:
No quarter was given by either side and by quarter time more than one player had been bowled over heavily.
The South Australians used their weight to great advantage, and were particularly strong in defence. Sydney folk were treated to a fine exhibition of the Australian code, There was any amount of brilliant high marking, great long kicking, and clever ground play and handling , the arena being in prefect condition for such play.

The spectators numbered about 10,000, all applauding the mightiest spiral punt of the carnival to date to the goal by Tyson, of West Australia. It was a splendidly contested third quarter, the lead fluctuating throughout, with the crowd wildly excited.


Western Argus (Kalgoorlie) 8-Aug-1933 p19 wrote:
At half time the totals stood: S.A., 5 goals 9 behinds: W.A., 7 goals 12 behinds. In the third term, however, South Australia made a supreme effort and smashed through the Western Australian defenders, who had been weakened by the necessity for Dave Wood to leave owing to an injured instep, and at three-quarter time S.A. led by two points. The last quarter, however .was played in semi-darkness. The Western Australian forwards bombarded S.A.. but it only resulted in a disheartening string of singles being added to its tally . Towards the conclusion of the match it was so dark that lights had to be turned on outside the ground and the ball became invisible to the spectators and to many of the players.

South Australia v Western Australia Playoff 9-Aug-1933


Western Argus (Kalgoorlie) 15-Aug-1933 p13 wrote:
After showing decided superiority in all parts of the field in the first quarter, West Australia, weakened by injuries, faded just before half time when they led by five points. Realising that the game was of vital importance, they fought valiantly in the last half, and although only playing with 17 men, still had a slender chance of victory, even in the last ten minutes of the game.
...
Guhl and Grigg did not resume for Western Australia after half-time, placing the Westerners in an unenviable position of finishing the contest with 17 men.

Victoria v South Australia Final 12-Aug-1933


Final Teams wore black arm bands and observed a two minute silence for Ray Morris who died in Malta on way to England as part of the Australian Rugby Tour. Morris played for Western Suburbs from 1927-32 and in 1933 had moved to Sydney University. His death was the result of complications after surgery for an ear infection.1

Forward in the Age 14-Aug-1933 p6 wrote:
A Strong wind had a big effect on the match with scoring strongly favouring the wind. South Australia recovered from a disastrous first quarter with a strong second quarter, but with only 4 scoring shots in the other three quarters, there was little chance of Victory.

During the half time interval the Victorians were instructed to introduce a little more virility into their play, and in the sternly contested third quarter weight was used with a vengeance. Before the attacks of the vigorous Victorians the South Australians gradually wilted, and with a game desperately hard the Victorians increased their lead and at three-quarter time the Victorians were ahead by 33 points. Thereafter the Victorians covered themselves with glory, and the South Australians with bruises, and won very comfortably
