As more players proceeded up the race, Christian Petracca scooped up the guernsey and threw it further under the gate.The guernsey reportedly had a number six on the back of it, the number Melbourne ruckman Luke Jackson wears who has been linked with a high-profile switch to the Dockers.The ugly act was picked up by those watching on and the backlash came flooding in for the Melbourne utility.“Jake Melksham grabbing a Freo guernsey off a fan and throwing it on the ground is not spectacular,” one fan wrote.“Pretty ordinary from Melksham & Petracca,” another footy fan wrote.“Grow up Melksham. It’s not hard to ignore the guernsey,” another added.The Demons burst out of the blocks in the opening term, kicking the first three goals of the contest before the Dockers kicked their first major.A tight tussle saw the Dees head into the first break holding the 4.3 (27) to 2.2 (14) advantage.
