Only MFC Game
Two of the three worst teams in the competition came together at the MCG and played out a thrilling draw which left the Demons last.

The two sides kicked three goals each in the final term. 20th man Thomson goalled to put Melbourne ahead, but Richmond equalised. Ken Albiston had a shot that missed scoring a behind by inches and he match ended with the two sides locked together for Melbourne's second Round 12 draw in a row.
