Despite beating University for the second time that year the Reds started long underdogs against their more favoured visitors, but four goals on debut from Hassett lifted them over the line.

The home side handled the muddy conditions better and were out to a near six goal lead at the last change before Carlton put in a belated rally and made the margin respectable. The Reds had been too fast and too clever for them, and with the Blues seemingly let them do whatever they wanted unchecked they racked up a commanding lead which got them home.

Monk was amongst the best despite playing in an unfamiliar role on the wing. Allan was credited for his marking and Lugton, Evans and Pearce for their defensive work. Tomkins and Hendrie won praise for their roving.

Jim Mackie suffered a broken collarbone in what would ultimately be his last VFL match.

It would be Melbourne's third and last victory for the year.
