Practice Match, 1980
Geelong vs Melbourne
Saturday March 15
Venue: Seymour
Attendance: Unknown


Geelong win by 53 points

Goalkickers: Tony Elshaug 2, Graham Hunnibell 2, Brent Crosswell 2, Chris Woodman 2, Stephen Bickford 1, Russell Rowe 1, Gerard Healy 1, Graham Gaunt 1, Robert Walters 1

In perfect conditions the Cats were too quick for the Demons and racked up a comfortable pre-season victory.

A short lived revival in the second quarter was led by Crosswell kicking two goals in two minutes, but the Cats steadied to take a five goal lead into the half. Geelong dominated the rucks and their repeated forward attacks were too much for a brave but beaten Melbourne backline. Captain-Coach Ditterich started in a back-pocket but didn't reemerge after half time.

Best for the Demons were Elshaug and Graham Gaunt.
