Sydney win by 31 points
1 - Nathan Jones
First game and first goal
Despite conceding the first two goals of the match the Demons held Sydney to just two goals for the rest of the half, including being held goalless in the second quarter.
Melbourne was unable to capitalise on their strong defensive effort, adding just three goals in the second half as the Swans gradually pulled away to a comfortable win.
Best were N. Jones, Dunn and M. Jones.
Alex Georgiou was reprimanded for striking Sydney's Lance Franklin in the first quarter.
