The two sides met as premiers of their respective competitions, and under lights the Demons were too powerful. The game was proposed to be played on the MCG but was rejected by the VFL.

Melbourne went to the last quarter with a nine goal lead, but kicking into the wind they only managed 3.10 with three shots that hit the post. Neither side have won their league since.

Best were Mann, Wise and Kenneally. Davis bruised his knee.
