Popular SANFLUA Field Umpire Leigh Haussen will make his AFL Debut on Saturday when he takes charge of the Western Bulldogs and Brisbane Lions match at Etihad Stadium. An example of persistence and dedication, Leigh finally got the call he’s been after earlier this year when he was appointed to the AFL Field Umpires List for 2017, after Jordan Bannister retired.
Leigh recently relocated to Melbourne to begin his AFL Umpires career after umpiring Round 1 in the SANFL. He’ll umpire alongside fellow South Australian umpire Sam Hay.
On behalf of all it’s members, the SANFLUA and its Executive Committee would like to wish Leigh all the best for Saturday.
