On cloud nine after their stunning upset of the reigning premiers in round one the Demons crashed back to earth as the Magpies handed them a thumping defeat.

Sav Rocca booted ten and Nathan Buckley was dominant with 28 possessions as the Magpies slammed on nine goals to one in the fourth quarter to stretch the margin beyond a hundred points.

Melbourne's best on an abysmal night were Alastair Clarkson, Glenn Lovett and David Neitz.

Garry Lyon was a late withdrawal, replaced by Adem Yze.
