Game Review

The Blues would defeat top of the table Richmond in this away game, demonstrating a topsy-turvy season which must have frustrated the fans (losing to bottom placed Hawthorn the week before).

The Blues remained in 7th spot despite the win.

Jim Francis was reported for the only time in his illustrious career but exonerated.
