The Tigers collected their 12th flag after destroying GWS Giants 108-25 at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday afternoon.

Dustin Martin led the dominant victory on his side, with the help of debut Marlion Pickett in the show.

After a brutal second and third quarter, GWS Giants were able to find some relief while Harry Himmelberg kicked the first goal of the final run.

But the goal did little to prevent the Tigers from taking an 83 lead to win the premiership.

With less than two hours to go before the game, ground staff were seen desperately trying to clean the field with brooms and leaf blowers.

The last-minute throw problem was caused by a curtain raiser under the age of 17, when players walked over white-painted lines that had not dried up and forced officials to fix it.

White boot markings were seen scattered around the center circle lines while crew members worked to dry the paint and clean up the mess.

There is demonstrably more at stake for major final rivals and GWS underdogs, who first entered the AFL in 2012.

In their debut season, GWS won only two games and lost five times with more than 100 points. They were wooden spoons for their first two years in the competition.

A victory on Saturday – their first major last performance – would mark the club's first seasonal victory.
