Melbourne win by 122 points
First Game and First Goal
Frank Roberts (also with St. Kilda)
Melbourne kept their unbeaten streak alive with a 20 goal win over the hapless Shinboners. They had battled in previous weeks to stay unbeaten, but were never seriously troubled by North as they racked up what remains their equal 18th highest score in VFL/AFL football and their third largest win.
To add to his side's woes Bill Findlay contributed 0.7 for North.
Truscott was 19th man.
Melbourne 8.17 d. North Melbourne 6.5
