Fremantle Dockers dig into thrilling Marvel Stadium tie against Richmond Tigers

Richmond and Fremantle have played the first AFL draw of the season, making them three straight nail-biting contests for the Tigers.

After losing to the Gold Coast and lowly North Melbourne in devastating circumstances over the last two weeks, Richmond tested the hearts of their fans at Marvel Stadium on Friday night.

Young Tigers forward Noah Cumberland scored just outside the 50m mark but played on just as the siren sounded as the referee signaled the end of the game.

Richmond had plenty of chances to win the game, but Cumberland only needed to blitz the ball for a point and secure a memorable win after being hit in the chest by Marlion Pickett.
