In a final minute thriller the Bombers got over the line, but only just.

AFL great Leigh Matthews summed the game up perfectly calling it “not a game to remember, except for these last 10 minutes!”

Controversy has since sparked as the winning goal, which came off the boot Essendon’s Cale Hooker, failed to be picked up by the hotly debated score review system.

Outrage has erupted online as footy fans feel the Giants were cheated of a win as the umpires failed to pick up Adam Kennedys touch on the ball.
