On a cold Friday night in June, a South side missing Fernando De Moraes and Ricky Diaco proved toothless in attack against an equally mediocre Richmond side. The visitors however were able to secure victory in this match when Henry Fa'arodo's harmless low cross from the right went through Mitch Langerak's arms and legs, allowing Steve Burton to score an easy tap in.
