AFL 2022: Melbourne Demons, Christian Petraka surprised by handball disapproval

The star of the demons, Christian Petraka, was visibly surprised when a teammate did the unthinkable in a “terrible” moment that you rarely see.

The star of the demons, Christian Petraka, was visibly surprised when Bailey Fritz refused to give him the ball with his hand in front of the goals.

It was a nightmare 12-point upset for the Demons in the first quarter as the Lions climbed to the other end and scored a quick goal just a minute after Fritsch wasted a specific goal.

Fritz picked up a loose ball and had Petrakas in his left hand, but chose to run the ball alone before Jack Payne popped it from behind.

After screaming for the ball, an angry Petracca showed his frustration by extending both his arms to inform his teammate that he was wide open.

It was not the start Melbourne wanted after three consecutive defeats.

“She did not give it. Payne caught him. “He refused to give the handball to Petrakas, who is absolutely surprised he did not get the handball,” Brian Taylor told Triple M.

“And that sums up the last month of Melbourne for me.”

Kangaroo legend Wayne Carey said: “This is the difference between a premiere team and not so much.

“They would have given it to BT last year. You have to give this ball. If Petraka gets this ball, he runs and hits this easy goal “.

Josh Jenkins told SEN: “You don’t see that from Melbourne. That’s awful.”

Melbourne lived a nightmarish football month.

The club is desperately waiting for the return of Max Gawn, who is still weeks away with a serious ankle injury.

Melbourne, who were unbeaten after the first 10 rounds of the season, lost three in a row and had to deal with the aftermath of a dispute between Steven May and Jake Melksham.

May was suspended and Melksham needed surgery on his arm.

The Demons also recently lost key striker Tom McDonald to a leg injury.
