Melbourne's season had been given life by a surprise win over West Coast the previous week, and with Carlton in poor form another upset wasn't out of the question. The result remained in doubt until half time, before the home side kicked away in the third quarter to win easily.

The sides were even in the first quarter, but Garry Lyon was put out of the game by a bruised calf during the second quarter and Neil Balme couldn't cover his loss. Melbourne won the last quarter narrowly but it was a small victory on an otherwise disappointing day. Balme didn't attend the post-match press conference, leaving before winning coach David Parkin had finished his remarks. It left Melbourne two games out of the top six with tricky games against Collingwood and Essendon to come.

Best were Tingay, M. Febey and Viney. First gamer Glenn Molloy replaced Martin Pike (bruised shin) in the selected side.

Jim Stynes was reported for striking Justin Madden with an open hand during the second quarter and Phil Gilbert for striking Brent Heaver in the first quarter but both were cleared. Stynes claimed he was trying to push his opponent away and had sleepless nights after being reported, saying "I pride myself on having a clean record and obviously there was no malice in the action, it's just part of the game". Madden admitted he'd dived, calling his fall an "Academy Award-winning performance". The umpire agreed that Madden exaggerated the contact but that it was still worthy of a report. Stynes' clearance allowed him to play for Victoria.

Greg Williams had 44 possessions but didn't receive any Brownlow Medal votes, ultimately costing him the award.
