Saturday August 18 - Richmond Cricket Ground
On a slippery surface there was a lot of interference from bystanders standing on the ground. Richmond spent most of the day on the attack, and could have had more goals if not for stout defence towards the end of the game. This was Melbourne's first ever loss.
