KG vs Kerls - The Battle of '64!

South Adelaide's history-making premiership in 1964 remains in SANFL folklore after the Panthers came from bottom the previous year to top in the space of twelve months.

But what remains unclear is how decorated SANFL field umpire Ken ''KG'' Cunningham found himself with concussion after a controversial off-the-ball incident in the 1964 Preliminary Final involving Neil Kerley's blue-and-white brigade.

Click on the video above to watch highly-respected TV presenter Keith Conlon put the tough questions to two of the State's most recognisable football personalities in a determined bid to get to the bottom of one of SA football's biggest mysteries.

Stay tuned to the SANFL website for more famous tales to be told in the lead up to next year's SANFL History Exhibition at the State Library.
