Aussie rules footballer turns sleeper agent, changes teams mid-play

Tuesday June 30th, 2015

Australian comedian Russell Gilbert pulled off quite the stunt in Tuesday's EJ Whitten Legends Aussie rules football game. 

The game features retired Aussie rules players teamed up with celebrities to raise money for charity. Gilbert is a regular participant and has been known to pull off some kind of trick. Back in 2002, he came off the bench, picked up a loose ball and booted it through the goal posts

On Monday, Gilbert seemed to be cruising to victory with the All-Stars team when he caught a pass deep in his defensive end. But then all of sudden he was offense. He ripped off his red All-Stars jersey to reveal a blue Victoria one and knocked the ball through the uprights for a Victoria goal.

Didn't anyone notice he was the only one on the red team wearing blue shorts?
