Biggest loss in Round 13
The match was already well and truly over before Footscray piled on 10 goals to one in the last term. A disconsolate John Northey said: "We've got to make sure that we show the people that we can still play football".
Steven Stretch suffered a knee injury which was originally thought to require a reconstruction, but eventually kept him out for just six weeks.
Best were G. Lovett, Schwarz and J. Stynes. Graeme Yeats was reported for striking Nigel Kellett with an arm to the head during the second term and suspended for three matches. Allen Jakovich (back) and Peter Rohde (wife in labour) were late withdrawals. Simon Eishold was removed from the Reserves game after a quarter to allow him to come into the side late.
