Notes[edit]

  • 1:^ Bob Rush stood in to perform the match day coaching duties in the 1930 Grand Final, including delivering the half time address, because regular coach Jock McHale was absent on the day of the game, having fallen ill with influenza days before the game. For many years, Rush was credited with having coached the game; but after a decision in 2014 by the AFL's historians, McHale is now credited as Collingwood's sole coach in the game for the purposes of coaching statistics.[2]
