Kane Cornes admitted he was wrong in a bizarre stunt live on TV where he somersaulted in his toughest call of the season.
Kane Cornes admitted he was wrong to attack Collingwood star Jack Ginnivan in a stunning backflip in his comments earlier this year.
The football world got to see Cornes like we’ve never seen him before in The Sunday Football Show as he actually admitted one of his bold predictions exploding in his face.
He also appeared sporting a blond mop on top to show he is now in Ginnivan’s fan club following the rising star’s Anzac Day heroics, where he was awarded the medal for best player on the ground.

Ginnivan has become a surprisingly high-profile player this season after public criticism from Cornes. Ginnivan was accused of being a little too colorful when celebrating a victory at Collingwood earlier this season.
His response since that criticism would be to give Pies coach Craig McRae lots of smiles – especially after he scored five goals against the Bombers.
Cornes has now somersaulted and announced he’s on the G train, appearing in his bold new look in a bizarre stunt on live TV.
“I was putting on makeup a little bit earlier and just (had) a little touch up,” Cornes said.
“Let’s be honest: Jack Ginnivan has an edge. I was wrong, he kicked five at Anzac Day on the big stage.
“There’s something about this boy that I like, so I want the upper hand.
“There’s an edge on him and I’m on board and I love it.”
This comes after Demons legend Garry Lyon told Fox Footy Ginnivan that his critics’ performance would shut up.
He said, “If you can do it like that on the biggest stage, then you can say hey, all the critics can get in the back seat.”
Former Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley also congratulated Ginnivan for handling the additional attention Cornes’ comments have given him.
“He was able to back up. When he’s the center of attention and the focus, he can go and do his job,” he said.
“Even on the big stage he was able to perform.”
