St Kilda win by 35 points
2 - Nathan Jones
First game as coach
Former Adelaide coach Craig's first quarter was a disappointment, with his side conceding seven goals to the 2-9 Saints - but after that the Demons all but broke even and showed promise in parts throughout the rest of the game.
In the second quarter Melbourne were dominant for large patches, but without a firing forward they couldn't make it count and St Kilda ended up winning the quarter. By three quarter time the margin had blown out to seven goals before Melbourne rebounded to win the last term.
Best were Garland, McDonald and Watts.
