Richmond win by 32 points

Goalkickers: Jeff Farmer 3, David Neitz 2, Ben Beams 1, Brad Green 1, Russell Robertson 1, Cameron Bruce 1

Jeff Farmer was reported in the first ten minutes for charging Nick Daffy, and the Demons never got going despite being within striking distance for most of the day. Farmer got three goals, and two weeks for the charge.

Richmond used pre-season trial rules of no line through the centre circle, to effectively savage Jeff White with multiple ruckmen, and with their midfield running rampant there was nothing Melbourne could do to get their noses in front leaving them on the verge of a first round Ansett Cup exit. Brownlow Medallist Shane Woewodin spent much of the day on the bench due to a lack of match fitness - he still managed to pick up a bruised eye when he did come on.

Troy Simmonds injured his ankle in the last quarter.

Best were Williams, Brown and Nicholson.
