Fremantle have completed an unlikely comeback against the Tigers at the MCG after trailing by 77 points at the end of the fourth quarter.
David Mundy slotted 13 clutch goals after the siren thanks to 13 consecutive brain fades from Richmond defender Alex Rance, leading the Dockers to a one-point victory.
It had to be seen to be believed. Mundy marked the ball 45 metres out from goal as the full-time siren sounded. Richmond fans and players began to celebrate what they thought was an enormous win — but then Alex Rance, out of sheer frustration, gave away a silly fifty-metre penalty.
Unfortunately for Richmond, it was to be the first of many.
The initial infringement against Rance resulted in an easy goal for Mundy, bringing the final margin back to 71 points. As soon as the ball went through the goals Rance acted up again, this time delivering an awe-inspiring suplex on the MCG deck, and giving away another free kick to Mundy in the goal square.
Rance continued in this manner, giving away one free kick after another. After the fifth free kick his teammates tried to restrain him, but they were unsuccessful. He was a man on a mission.
The thirteenth free kick was perhaps the most bewildering of them all. A wounded Mundy was struggling to get to his feet after suffering so many unrelenting blows, and Rance took advantage by climbing onto the MCG fence and launching onto him, landing a five-star frog splash.
Thankfully for the players and fans, this knocked the wind out of Rance and he was unable to continue, however the damage was already done — the Dockers were ahead 111-110.
The bizarre actions from Rance have been attributed to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a condition Rance has reportedly been struggling with since Mundy kicked the winner last season.
Both coaches were speechless in their post-match press conferences, so were unable to comment, however it goes without saying Alex Rance has some explaining to do.
