The Demons claimed their second 1975 finalist scalp in two weeks after having beaten Hawthorn a week earlier, and set their sights on a huge Round 1 upset over defending premiers North Melbourne.
Ray Biffin and Tony Dullard dominated the Richmond forwards, restricting Royce Hart to one goal while a seven goal blit in the third quarter gave them an insurmountable lead at the last change.
Best were Biffin, Baker and Coles. Ross Brewer injured his hamstring.
