Casey recorded their first loss of the season thanks to Richmond, despite a Demons midfielder collecting 48 touches and two goals in Round 5.
Here's a quick wrap-up for Round 5 of the VFL season.
GWS vs Brisbane (74 - 157)
Ladder leaders Brisbane strengthened their place at the summit of the VFL with an 83-point win over GWS, with forward Tom Fullarton containing his strong run of form in front of goal with a haul of five majors.
Fullarton now has 13 goals from his past four appearances at VFL level, combing with VFL-listed forward Wylie Buzza to place pressure on Chris Fagan for selection, despite the Lions' flourishing front third in the top flight.
Footscray vs Southport (76 - 102)
Southport notched up their second win of the year thanks to a strong second half at ETU Stadium, blowing past the Bulldogs thanks to their senior figures through midfield.
Luke Goater led the scoring for Footscray with three goals, while Lachie Sullivan was again the Dogs; best ball-winner with 28 possessions in the defeat.
Bulldogs fans got their first look at Category B recruit James O'Donnell, who showed glimpses of poise and balance with a strong first two terms.
Box Hill vs Coburg (124 - 53)
Box Hill remain undefeated and will carry a league-high percentage of 192.2% into Round 6 of the season following their 71-point win over Coburg.
Jacob Koschitzke managed three goals for the Hawks as he looks to re-find some form at the state league level, while fellow AFL-listed forwards Max Ramsden and Sam Butler booted two goals apiece. Jaylon Thorpe led the way for Box Hill with a quartet of major from his nine touches.
Ben Jepson and Flynn Gentile were again standouts for Coburg in what was another difficult evening for the standalone club.
Carlton vs Sandringham (71 - 68)
The Blues snatched defeat from the Zebras after trailing by eight points at the final break, managing to stave off a late Sandringham run to notch up their third win of the year.
Paddy Dow's dominant season continued, with the fringe Carlton midfielder collecting a season-high 40 possessions in the win, gaining plenty of support from Jack Carroll (37 possessions, one goal) and Lache Fogarty (28 possessions).
The Blues managed to claim victory despite being undermanned at their key position points, with Tom De Koning managed at both levels for the Blues, while third-string ruckman Alex Mirkov was joined by Harry Lemmey and Sam Durdin in being removed from the side.
Youngster Jack Peris impressed with his forward craft in the front third for Sandringham.
A stellar come-from-behind win saw the Magpies move into the top eight, with seven unanswered goals tallied across either side of the three-quarter time break seeing Collingwood run home victors.
Nick Bryan (18 disposals, 45 hit-outs) was arguably Essendon standout through an AFL-list lens.
Northern Bullants vs Sydney Swans (93 - 66)
The Bullants recorded their first in over a year, holding off a battled Sydney outfit to chalk up with maiden victory under Brodie Holland.
Brandon Ryan, the cousin of Fremantle defender Luke Ryan, booted five goals and recorded 17 possessions to help steer his side to victory at Preston City Oval, while Will Sexton and Jean-Luv Velissaris also managed multiple goals.
Velissaris also had a team-high 32 touches, while Baker Smith and Spence Johnson were also among the Bullants' best.
Second-year Swan Angus Sheldrick sent a nice reminder to Sydney selectors with 39 possessions and two goals in the loss, while Corey Warner responded after being dropped following an AFL debut with 23 possessions.
Gold Coast vs North Melbourne (136 - 80)
The Suns remain undefeated and in fine form through the opening five rounds, with their latest victory coming in the form of a 56-point win over North Melbourne's VFL outfit.
Pre-season pick-up Brodie McLaughlin won't be far from an AFL debut after his four-goal haul, with the former Frankston forward's season tally now set at 15 goals from four games.
Roo Hugh Greenwood was a one-man marching band through the midfield on his way to recording a staggering 15 clearances to tally 27 disposals and 10 tackles for the day.
Casey vs Richmond (82 - 94)
Richmond handed Casey their first loss of the year, recording a two-goal win over the reigning premiers on their own home turf.
