The 2006 leadership group consisted of David Neitz as captain, along with Russell Robertson, Cameron Bruce, Brad Miller and Brad Green.

Melbourne's third consecutive appearance in the finals, and last before they imploded in 2007, was a rough road. They lost to eventual wooden spooners Carlton in Round 1, 2006 and didn't register a victory until Round 4. Winning 10 of their next 11 put them back in the race for the finals before one win in their last five put them out of the running for a double chance.

They won a final for the first time since 2002 but bowed out against Fremantle a week later.

At the end of the season Shannon Motlop, Phil Read, Alistair Nicholson and Nick Smith were delisted.
