St Kilda legend Leigh Montagna has gone in to bat for Clayton Oliver after the Melbourne star was accused of diving in last night’s semi-final win over Hawthorn.
Oliver was bumped by Tom Mitchell in the second quarter, resulting in a free to kick Aaron vandenBerg.
Fans were savage on Oliver, accusing him of diving.
Speaking on his show Dead Set Legends with Jay Clark, Joey said that it silly by Mitchell and that Oliver had done nothing wrong.
“It was dumb by Tom Mitchell and smart by Clayton Oliver,” Joey said.
“It wasn’t a blatant flop or a dive, he wasn’t expecting the contact, he didn’t brace and try and hit Mitchell back, it was silly by Mitchell.”
