Goalscorers: Larkin, Callen, Hope, Hughes.
RCA opened the scoring in the 30th second of their opening friendly of the season at Richmond. Larkin latching onto a through ball from Armstrong to steer the ball over the head of the sdvancing keeper.
RCA continued to press in the opening 15 minutes but found themselves on equal terms after 17 minutes when a mix up in defence saw Scott put into his own goal.
This gave impetus to the home team who started to look the better team.
