Geelong jumped to second on the ladder thanks to eight straight goals, and even though Melbourne got within eight points in the last quarter they couldn't sustain the effort and win.

Despite the result it was still the highest score Melbourne had ever managed at Waverley to that point. Bob Skilton still wasn't happy, fuming "we had our chances but we fluffed it. We dropped our bundle".

Best were Biffin, Sullivan and Wells. Osborne (flu) was replaced in the selected side by Grambeau. Brewer (bruised leg) was replaced by Hutchison and Walley by Guy in the last quarter.
