The outcome of Saturday’s match between Melbourne and St Kilda could’ve been completely different if there had been goal-line cameras installed at Traeger Park in Alice Springs.
The Dees’ three-point defeat of the Saints came with a controversial score review in the last quarter.
Melbourne’s Christian Petracca produced a remarkable snap midway through the final quarter which bounced through the goals.
The goal umpire made a soft call of a goal despite protests from St Kilda defender Dougal Howard, who was adamant he touched the ball before it crossed the line.

The incident was referred to a score review and replays were inconclusive, so the initial call of a goal stood.
The AFL has now committed to install goal-line cameras at all venues for the rest of the season.
West Coast’s Jeremy McGovern joined Botica’s Bunch on Monday and chimed in over the incident.
