Match Statistics

Collingwood win by 18 points

Goalkickers: Robert C Johnson 3, George Margitich 2, Ivor Warne-Smith 2, Bill Cutler 1, Jimmy Davidson 1, Bill Vanthoff 1, Stan Wittman 1


Melbourne hadn't won a match against Collingwood since beating them in the 1926 Grand Final, and the trend continued to hand them their second consecutive defeat for the year.

In a dry first half the Redlegs had the advantage, opening up a 16 point advantage in the second quarter, but when the rains fell in the second half the Magpies took over and won comfortably.

The margin at half time could have been more if Melbourne had pressed home their 16 point advantage instead of chipping the ball around. Collingwood cut the gap to five points and then unleashed their tough big men to advantage.

Wittman, Johnson and Murray were Melbourne's best.

At the end of the match a Collingwood player took exception a patron abusing him and threw a punch, the fan ducked and the player accidentally punched a female spectator in the face instead.
