'Outrageous' last-second super-goal wins AFLX


//

A last-second super-goal from Richmond spearhead Jack Riewoldt has given his side Team Rampage the second AFLX title.

Team Rampage came into the final after a scintillating performance in the group stage, but found themselves down by three points with just seconds left in the Grand Final.

Following a rule-change for the Grand Final, which saw game-changers enabled for the entire second half, Team Rampage's nominated game-changer Riewoldt was awarded a dubious free-kick before snapping truly with the last kick of the tournament.

The win came after a largely successful night which raised $30,000 for the Maddie's Vision foundation, while an additional $10,5000 was raised for the Ronald McDonald House Charity for the 21 super-goals kicked on the night.

Several of the AFL's biggest stars showcased their talent, namely Carlton co-captain Patrick Cripps, who finished the highest point-scorer of the night.

Prior to Riewoldt's Grand Final-winner, Cripps provided the highlight of the night with a spectacular NFL-style place-kick during the round-robin stage.

Fremantle star Nat Fyfe was also in imperious form, as was West Coast Eagles midfielder Andrew Gaff who made his first appearance on an AFL field since his altercation with Andrew Brayshaw last year.

The tournament also gave some of last year's trade deadline movers to showcase their skills in new Essendon recruit Dylan Shiel and ex-Power midfielder Jared Polec.

The spectacular play on the field was also mirrored by the players' left-field outfit choices inspired by NBA stars.

While there were several candidates for best dressed, All-Australian defender Alex Rance channeled Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith by arriving on a longboard.
