Country footy captain reported for spraying his own players

The captain of a country footy side has been reported and will front the tribunal for giving his own players a spray at half time.

As reported in the Geelong Advertiser, Bannockburn FC captain Brad Watts (pictured above) used language the umpires found offensive, when addressing his players during the game against Thomson on the weekend.

Brad told Tom Elliott he didn’t even realise the umpires had heard his fiery speech.

“I used a bit of colourful language, I thought it was just in-house, we were in a huddle on our own,” Brad said.

“I wasn’t even aware at the time that the umpires had heard.

“Blokes swear throughout the game and it gets overlooked, I’ll feel a bit ripped off if I do miss any games because of it.”

Brad was offered a one-match ban after the match, however, will fight the charge at the tribunal.
