Inspired by a Kerry Greenwood short story and set amidst the passion and fanaticism of 1929 Australian Rules Football. When Phryne is duped into investigating the coach's missing 'lucky cap', she discovers a gruesome murder instead - the local team captain hanging by a rival team's scarf - and it seems at first a clear-cut case of murderous sabotage. Phryne's investigation is complicated by the return of Jack's ex-wife, her dashing fiancé, and the Deputy Police Commissioner's fanatical support for the opposition team. As she uncovers a past crime, Phryne reveals the lengths some men will go for the sake of the game. Written by Every Cloud Productions

Did You Know?


Neither of the Australian Rules teams referenced in this episode would have ever existed in 1920's Melbourne. The West Melbourne football club (Wests) was dissolved in 1908 and wore the colours red and white, not black and royal blue stripes as this episode would have you believe. Wests went on to be merged with North Melbourne, who now wear royal blue and white stripes. Although Abbotsford has never existed as an Aussie Rules football team (citation needed here), Victoria Park in Abbotsford Victoria was the historic headquarters of the Collingwood Magpies until 2005. Some very clever Aussie Rules footy fiction by the writers of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries to deal with the litigious VFL fanatics. See more »


In the opening scene, the team captain can clearly be seen hanging by a rope with a neatly wound noose. Yet when his body is found, he is suddenly hanging from a team scarf. See more »


Dorothy 'Dot' Williams: [to Hugh] Yes, but that's the hardest thing, isn't it, staying true to your team when everything's going wrong? Just like you and the inspector.
