KPickett/Mansell push/shove/wrestle but somehow the umpire picks up a 80m downfield to KPickett in that wrestle when the replay clearly shows KPickett instigating the action... KPickett goes after Mansell after he kicks the first goal, Mansell defends himself, Spargo jumps in and gets thrown by Mansell and given a word on the ground which is what precipitates the "more action" throughout the group of players standing around and pushing/shoving... MPickett shoves Oliver, he takes exception and grabs MPickett, Bolton jumps in to push Oliver off MPickett and shoves him a 2nd time in which Oliver flops on the ground and gets another shot at goal (which ends up a point)... soft as fu** frees to Melbourne in both instances.
Melksham/Nank contest, Pickett out the back through traffic kicks to Rioli, runs forward for the handball receive and kicks to Boltons chest in the pocket, but he misses absolutely everything with his snap.
-Pickett intercepts Petracca handball in D50 and exits D50 to Rioli to Houli (he gets caught slow not making a decision HTB).
-Grimes smothers McDonald from on the mark in his attempt at a goal
-Broad good attack on the footy defensively
-Bolton off ground in D50 into Neal-Bullen's chest then into Bolton's chest and tap forward over pack to himself to exit D50 and kick to centre
-Pickett nice play in defence against Fritsch
-nice play defensively by Baker to get the ball forward
-nice chase-down by Pickett on Hunt to get HTB
split into two parts to follow (as the GIF was too long haha)
-Jackson handballs forward and Nank chases hard to close the gap on Jordan and affects the kick nicely
-Houli intercept mark
-Dees I50 Pickett gets there first and jinks through 3, touches on ground and exits D50
-Shedda intercept mark
-Mansell wins a nice 1on1 contest in D50 against Fritsch
-Baker nice intercept mark
some quality Shedda moments tonight:
-Shedda chases ball around umpire, gets handball over his head on the ground to Rioli
-Jackson down to ground, Shedda toe-pokes it to Bolton who exits the pack... amazing touch by Shedda.
-Shedda puts a nice smooth shirtfront on Oliver
-Shedda to JR8 lace out
-KMac to Shedda to Dusty
-Shedda who kicks a nice snap goal
-Shedda smothers Jordan hball gets hball over to Balta
-Shedda to Graham slick release handball for I50
-Shedda handballs over his shoulder but it's too slick for Cotchin and Pickett,
-Then moments later he's front and center and bounce-handles the ball like a pro & exits D50
