Fans React To Leigh Montagna’s Cheeky Goal That Pissed Off His Own Coach

At the ripe old age of 33, Leigh Montagna fills the role as wily old veteran for St Kilda.

He showed that in the last quarter of their win over Brisbane at Etihad Stadium today, having the presence of mind to run the clock down in a novel way with the Saints leading.

Joey got on the end of a pass in the goal square and opted to stop completely and wait for the Lions defenders to catch up with him to keep the clock running as long as possible.

The move was slammed as arrogant by many fans on Twitter:

Montagna himself spoke after the game and confirmed his intentions.

“I was just trying to waste as much time as possible,” he said.

“It was midway through the last quarter and it was still pretty close, so I was just trying to milk a bit of the clock and use a bit of experience.”

The Saints kicked away in the end, running out 14.23 (107) to 11.10 (76) winners.
