The Demons suffered a second defeat in a month after winning eight in a row at the start of the year. After a minute's silence for the late Harry Parkin, the loss came at the hands of their nearest rivals. Richmond had lost four in a row to slip outside the four, and as such looked like easy prey for the unbeaten visitors - but the home side narrowly prevailed.

Roberts, Reilly and Mueller were Melbourne's best.

The loss didn't cost the Demons too badly, two of the other top four teams lost as well as fifth placed South Melbourne.
