The Demons returned to their bad habits of 1944, giving Richmond a big start at quarter time and not being able to find a path to goal other than through Fred Fanning. In a match where wind affected the scoring the home side's pace and superior system were the difference.

Melbourne struck back in the second quarter when they had their chance with the wind, but went into the last term six goals behind. With the strong wind they had a chance to win, but without Ron Baggott alongside Fanning they couldn't kick enough goals to get within three goals.

Mueller, Cordner and Fanning were best.
