Two wins before the break for Victoria's interstate games against Tasmania and Western Australia had lifted the Demons to fifth, but they were still the "best of the rest" as they were two games shy of third placed Richmond and Geelong in fourth. Luckily they were given the chance to bridge the gap to the Tigers immediately, unfortunately they were blown off the park and the gulf in class between the top and bottom sides was cruelly exposed.

By quarter time things were looking grim for the Demons with a three goal deficit, but at least they had salvaged something after conceding the first four of the game without reply. By the half the match was all but over as the margin had blown out to over seven straight kicks. Only a break-even last quarter when Richmond had slowed down and allowed them back in the game saved Melbourne from a fearful beating. It was still Richmond's second biggest score against the Demons since entering the league in 1908.

Best were Emselle, Alves and Johnston. Hassa Mann, his side's best player all year, had to leave the ground at three-quarter time after suffering a knock to his knee.
