By George, what a goal!

AFLX: Castagna's pace Jason Castagna shows his speed and kicks a goal out of midair in the AFLX match against Brisbane.

Livewire forward Jason Castagna enhanced his X-factor reputation with a spectacular goal in Richmond’s second AFLX game against Brisbane at Sydney Allianz Stadium last Saturday.

The premiership Tiger displayed his trademark pace, plus plenty of skill, in tapping the ball around the boundary line twice, breaking clear of lunging Lion opposition, and then soccering the ball mid-air through the big sticks.

It was one of the key highlights of the entire inaugural AFLX tournament, and it underlined why the young man they call George at Tigerland is highly regarded for his ability to produce something quite out of the ordinary on the field of battle.
