From the papers[]

The Sunday Age[]

"In a contest that was downright ugly at times, the Eagles always appeared to have something in reserve but they must have been wondering at half-time how on earth they were going to shrug off the pesky Tigers.

With Wayne Campbell silencing Peter Matera on the wing, and Paul Harding and Peter Wilson off injured by half-time, Richmond managed to build a one-point lead at the main break.

The Tigers had been inspired by the heroics of Campbell and, later, Brendon Gale and Paul Bulluss, who were both forced from the field with nasty head injuries in the third term.

But Eagles coach Mick Malthouse made what turned out to be the match-winning move when he shifted Ashley McIntosh to full-forward and threw John Worsfold back into defence in the second half. The result was both immediate and effective as McIntosh booted three goals in the third quarter and Worsfold flexed his considerable muscle in the back line."[1]
