Melbourne win by 12 points

In their first hit-out for the year the Demons travelled to New Zealand and pulled off a surprise win against the Swans. In contrast to their dismal 1997 form Melbourne were strong at the ball and the defenders held strong in the face of pressure from their opponents.

Best were Farmer, White and Johnstone. Shaun Smith dislocated his finger and James McDonald hurt his groin.
