Practice Match
Melbourne vs Collingwood
Saturday 17 March
Venue: North Hobart Oval
Attendance: Approximately 8000


Melbourne win by 18 points

Goalkickers: David Neitz 4, Ben Beams 3, Brad Green 2, Daniel Ward 2, Adem Yze 1, Alistair Nicholson 1, Shane Woewodin 1, Cameron Bruce 1, Jeff White 1
With most of the match played under the first steady rain Hobart had seen in 18 months, the Demons shook off some of the rust from their wayward Ansett Cup performance with a win over the old enemy. Tasmanian local Ben Beams had 23 touches and three goals, while his fellow islander Green added two. When Cameron Bruce goalled 14 minutes into the third quarter the margin was out to 39 points before the Pies staged a comeback.

Shane Woewodin picked up 23 possessions in his first full game of the season.

Neitz, Beams and Yze were best for the Demons, while Brent Grgic was fined $1200 for abusing an umpire.
