Matt Orford Kick Nominated for Covell award

A superb goal kick from Orford today inspired me to bring back the prestigious Luke Covell award.

For those who don’t know, a few years back Luke Covell had a kick from the sideline to potentially win the game for the Sharks. What followed was embarrasing, he couldn’t have missed by more if he tried.

If anyone can find footage of this kick anywhere, let me know, cause it is gold.

But anyway, since then every terrible goal kick has been labelled a “Covell”.

Today in the match between the Warriors and Manly, Orford came up with a woefull miss-kick and his kick will be in the running for the 2009 Luke Covell award.


If you have any potential nominees for the 2009 Luke Covell award, be sure to let me know. This award focuses mainly on goal kicking, but especially bad field goal attempts can be accepted as well.
