Monash Warriors star Heath Decker had a conundrum Saturday.

He was scheduled to play Wide Receiver and Quarterback for the Warriors in the 2014 TGI Friday’s VIC BOWL on Bendigo Saturday night at 6pm.

However last Thursday night the head coach at his beloved North Ringwood Aussie Rules club called with a problem: they needed him to play fullback Saturday afternoon against the equivalent of Buddy Franklin in their Eastern Football League semi final.

UPDATE:

Some of the media attention the story has been receiving Monday:

Congratulations to Tom Kinloch: 300 incredible games

Tom Kinloch plays 300 games

Tom Kinloch will reached an epic milestone on Saturday 19th July against the Miners.

As he laced up his boots and took the field he reached a milestone that no one in Australia let alone Victoria has ever got close to.

300 games of American Football is a truly incredible feat as most years the season ran only 10 to 14 games which makes his record of longevity only more amazing.

Tom has represented both the Victorian Eagles and the Australian National team in multiple campaigns, served as State and National coach and lead the Croydon Rangers Juniors to multiple Junior Vic Bowls.

Tom was recognised for his achievements as a life member of Gridiron Victoria in 2012.

Congratulations Tom on this remarkable feat from everyone who plays American Football in this country.
