Frank McGrath seemed to have saved the game for his side when he took a strong mark at full-back. But instead of kicking long, McGrath chose to play on and was tackled by Richmond's Bob Bawden. Bawden won a free kick for holding the ball, and his kick from thirty metres out scored the goal that won the match for the Tigers by 5 points. Ex-North Melbourne full-forward Selwyn Murray was a star for Richmond, booting ten goals.
Meanwhile, Bob Chitty was in a particular nasty mood, tangling with various Tigers including Mopsy Fraser, Murray and Jack Dyer. It is believed that Chitty broke the leg of an unknown Tiger opponent in a heavy collision early in the match.
