Mundy pushes Dockers to nailbiting finish

Former Fremantle skipper David Mundy has broken Richmond hearts for the second time in three years, goaling after the siren to give the Dockers a two-point win in their AFL match at the MCG.

The Tigers were dreadful for three quarters and trailed by 30 points at the last change.

But the home team lifted with the first five goals of the final term and hit the lead with 24 seconds remaining when Brandon Ellis's flying left-footed snap sailed through.

Crucially, Dockers' onballer Lachie Neale was able to win the final centre clearance of the match.

Mundy marked on the lead and then kicked truly from a 45-degree angle to secure a 10.12 (72) to 10.10 (70) victory.

Two years ago, Mundy kicked the final goal in near-identical circumstances against the Tigers after Bachar Houli committed a bad turnover.
