The AFL used Round 15 to test a new goal review system imported from England. The blockbuster between Carlton and Collingwood was one of three games in which the Hawk-Eye technology was tried. The new system, however, was only being tried and not actually used to adjudicate any scores. Unlike the current system, which uses available replay footage, the new technology allows reviewers to see the scoring shot from a variety of angles as well as manipulating the vision themselves and even excluding angles to focus on just one or two to assist in determining the score. The multiple-angle technology allows comparative views to determine if the ball has been touched before passing the goal line, or whether it hit the goal post.
