Despite regaining two Brownlow Medal winners and a legend in Brian Wilson, Peter Moore and Robert Flower Melbourne were no match for the top side in the competition. Nine straight goals to four across the first quarter, and part of the second, put the Blues well on the road to victory at the MCG. Even a 37-17 free kick count in their favour couldn't help Melbourne on this day at the MCG.

From there on the Blues were in second gear, and no matter what the Demons did they couldn't close the gap. They kicked the first goal of every quarter but couldn't build on that and get near their opponents.

David Rhys-Jones was reported for striking Robert Flower but expressed amazement when Flower refused to shake hands with him at the end of the match. He was also reported for striking Peter Giles. He was outed for two weeks on each of the striking charges. It was found that as Flower backed into him to shepherd for a teammate Rhys-Jones struck him in the head. Asked to explain a conversation after the incident, the Carlton man said he had told Flower “he was weak”, and that the Melbourne man had replied “I’ll keep taking the free kicks”.

Best were Brian Wilson (30 touches), Healy and Yeats. Alan Johnson injured his hamstring.
