starting with Brock, aww...Go Vertramperli, go!
Canine pitch invader back at home
When Martin Burn settled down to watch the second Test of the International Rules series on Sunday on TV, he could barely believe what he saw.
There was much hilarity among the 60,000 crowd at the game, as a small dog got onto the pitch and chased the ball.
He recognised the pitch invader as the family pet, and the dog was eventually returned home.
Mr Burn called his family to watch as the dog interrupted play, haring around the pitch for five minutes.
Eventually, stewards managed to remove the dog from the pitch.
"Aye, he's unbelievable, isn't he?" said a delighted Mr Burn.
"He's only a baby, he's only a pup when you think about it as well.

His family said he was exhausted by his adventure
"But the poor dog now, he's at home now and he's not able to wag. He looks like he was in the marathon yesterday.
"Just as well there's not another match this Sunday, I don't think he'd pass the fitness test!"
