The Age Apology

We acknowledge a mistake made in today's paper regarding Victoria University and the Western Bulldogs. An advertisement was run congratulating the Western Bulldogs on an outstanding 2016 season, instead of one celebrating their Grand Final victory. This was the result of a breakdown in our ad system. We apologise to both Vic Uni and the Western Bulldogs.
