A-League Grand Final 'would have played out differently' if not for VAR - Barbarouses

The man who scored Melbourne Victory's decisive offside goal admits the A-League Grand Final would have been played differently had it been rightfully disallowed by the video assistant referee.

Kosta Barbarouses scored the only goal in Saturday night's 1-0 win over the Newcastle Jets but, while replays showed defender James Donachie was clearly offside when he headed Leroy George's cross back for the Kiwi international, a calamitous software error meant the VAR did not have access to the right camera...
