In what was a bit of a slow struggle between the two sides, most fans watching on couldn’t help but take notice of something else taking place throughout the game.

Most fans have grown accustom to listening to the likes of Eddie McGuire, Brian Taylor or Bruce McAvaney calling the games, but on Wednesday night it was a different tale.

Way back in 2009 Kelli Underwood made her commentary debut and finally returned to the AFL airwaves with fans loving every single minute of hearing her back behind the mic.

Underwood made her AFL commentary debut on Channel 10 in 2009 and has since called AFLW games and done commentary on ABC Radio but is now back calling AFL games.

Alongside Mark Howard, Underwood’s return was met with glowing praise from those watching on.

On the field the Dockers gave the Tigers a second half scare as they closed the gap down to only six points entering the final quarter.

After being held to only one goal in the first half, the Dockers flipped the script in the third quarter and put the Tigers to the sword.

Tigers coach Damien Hardwick wasn’t happy with what he saw unfold in the term and laid into his troops during the break and thankfully they responded in the fourth.

A four goal to one final quarter saw the Tigers run away with the comfortable victory on the scoreboard, but the margin flattered the win.

The Tigers have a bye in round 16 while the Dockers will look to bounce back when they take on Melbourne next Monday night at Cazaly’s Stadium.
