Notes

  • The R19, 1973 match report does not specifically name the feat, but it is fair to believe that kicking a goal in the first thirty seconds would mean it was with his first kick
  • Dullard, Tossol and Magner kicked goals with their first two kicks
  • Broadbridge kicked a point with his 'first' kick but received a 50m penalty and converted the re-kick.
  • Sylvia was playing his second match after not having a kick in his first.


Others
Geoff McInnes kicked a goal within the first 60 seconds on debut in Round 1, 1932. It's likely that it was from his first kick.

Kerry Ryan may have achieved the feat. This article says he kicked a goal "at his first attempt"
