The two sides met as premiers of their respective competitions, and it was the Demons who were too powerful. The game was proposed to be played on the MCG but was rejected by the VFL.

Melbourne went to the last quarter with a nine goal lead, but kicking into the wind they only managed 3.10 with three shots that hit the post.

Neither side have won their league since.
