After a season of fruitlessly searching for a star forward Melbourne finally found one but ironically suffered one of their biggest defeats of the season at the same time. Davie's six goals on debut is still the club record.

Strong wind ruined the match as a spectacle but Richmond managed it better, running away with the victory while their opponents butchered chance after chance.

Davie, Thomas and Chadwick were best.
