  • The R19, 1973 match report does not specifically name the feat, but it is fair to believe that kicking a goal in the first thirty seconds would mean it was with his first kick
  • Dullard, Tossol, Magner and Weideman kicked goals with their first two kicks
  • Broadbridge kicked a point with his 'first' kick but received a 50m penalty and converted the re-kick.
  • Sylvia and Campbell were playing their second match after not having a kick in their first.

Geoff McInnes kicked a goal within the first 60 seconds on debut in Round 1, 1932. It's likely that it was from his first kick.

Arthur Pound goalled nine minutes into his debut, possibly with his first kick.

Kerry Ryan may have achieved the feat. This article says he kicked a goal "at his first attempt"

Mike Collins 1961-1962 may have goalled with his first career kick in his second game.

Jeremy Nichols may have done it in Round 8, 1986.
