South Melbourne win by 56 points
Each team had lost the last seven matches, but South were still in a better position than their one win opponents as they had a number of injured players returning to the side. Melbourne's only victory so far during 1906 had been against South, but the experience didn't help them when South ran away to a huge victory.
Melbourne had several good players but there was a major absence of teamwork and system.
