MORE than a year on, Craig McRae remembers the loss acutely. It was accompanied by the beating of drums on the Frankston hill.
The Brisbane premiership star was three games into his role as Richmond’s VFL coach when the Tigers were toppled by the Dolphins.
It was Round 3 of 2016. Frankston failed to win a match in 2015; its most recent success had been in July, 2014.
“We did it!’’ timekeeper Michael Robinson fizzed on social media after the Dollies came from 29 points down at quarter time to win by 13.
McRae regards the match as a pivotal moment in Richmond’s rise in the VFL.
From defeat emerged a resolve to get better.
“It was their (Frankston’s) first win in, I’m not sure how long,’’ McRae was saying at the VFL grand final press conference at Carlton on Wednesday.
