Centrals jumped out to a 5 goal quarter time lead, and held off a couple of Port challenges to get the win in their retro guernseys.

For some reason the umps changed back to their normal uniforms at half time. Wasn't an issue in the 1980's Very Happy

Good win by Centrals.

Not the send off from Alberton that Summerton deserved.

In the 1980s the umpires didn't wear black shorts.

I have never before seen umpires in black shorts. Don't know what that had to do with Retro round.

CD were wearing a whitish retro uniform
It seemed to clash with the umpires being in white attire
Perhaps the umps and CD looked too similar, that being why the change occurred

I thought the clash was more with Port. Both Port and the umpires had black shorts and black socks. I still don't understand the umpires in black shorts. Never seen it before.

I have never before seen umpires in black shorts. Don't know what that had to do with Retro round.

The umpire uniforms for Retro Round were so half baked. First, the black shorts - I thought they may have been from yesteryear (I always thought they had white shorts), but also the plain white polos rather than the SANFL logo on the shoulders (as was the style in the 80’s/90’s) and only using them for the TV games just made it look even more half arsed.

If one was to be pedantic, the goal umpires had shorter jackets in the 80’s/90’s (only went down to the waist rather than the knees), though it looked like the goal umpires had fun with the retro look.

Also a little controversy with the online auction for the Centrals tops. Novita used a site that required the auction to be manually ended at their end at 6:00pm, yet forgot to end the auction so a couple of people got outbid after the cut off time. I believe Novita didn’t honour the late bids and those that lead at 6:00 still won their guernseys in the end, but I don’t get why Novita didn’t just use eBay.
