Melbourne's first match of the year was officially listed as a 'match simulation' over seven periods, but in reality almost all the senior AFL players were shelved after the opening four quarters. The Demons got off to a hot start with the first five goals of the game, but let in the last three of the opening term. Richmond then booted seven unanswered to start the second, taking a commanding lead. Melbourne got two late goals, cutting the margin to 19 and briefly retook the lead during the third term before the Tigers - in their first game under ex-Demon Adem Yze - recovered to win easily.

At the end of the full seven periods, the score was Richmond 21.21.147 to Melbourne 22.13.145. Clayton Oliver and Christian Salem played in the second game.

Best were Petracca, Pickett and Brown.
