Fremantle champion and all-round-great-guy David Mundy has described Sunday night’s light display on Matagarup Bridge as a “bit of a whoopsy” while chatting with Clairsy & Lisa.
Hit PLAY to listen in…
Freo fans leaving Optus Stadium after the Dockers’ sensational four-point win against Richmond were expecting the bridge to lit up in purple.
Instead they were met with West Coast’s blue-and-gold palette.

The gaffe went to the top, with Transport Minister (and avid Dockers fan) Rita Saffioti, who was also at the game, tweeting that she would “get to the bottom” of situation after receiving a “series of complaints”.
The wrong was finally righted a short time later when Saffioti tweeted “All fixed” with a awkward/relief emoji and a snap of the bridge with the correct colours.
All fixed. 😅 pic.twitter.com/zqOqWLIlrD
