Jamie Elliott's post-siren goal to sink Essendon will go down as one of the most iconic moments in the club's recent history.

An end-to-end run after Bomber Harrison Jones' missed chance at the city end of the MCG saw the Magpies forward have the chance to extend Collingwood's winning run to nine games.

With the siren sounding as he began his set shot routine, Elliott delivered on the big stage with a pinpoint kick flying through the goals.

The pandamonium sent the AFL world into shock, prompting plenty of reactions to the stunning finish.

Attention was also placed on Essendon's failure to negate Collingwood's ball movement after Jones' set shot, with Darcy Moore and Trent Bianco linking up to move the ball from one arc to the other in a matter of seconds.

With a two-point buffer being all that separated the two sides, many were quick to point out Essendon's poor defensive structure.
