Biggest win and highest score at Brunswick Street
Despite their massive percentage Melbourne needed to keep winning to be assured of a spot in the finals, and they responded with their biggest ever win and highest ever score at the Brunswick Street ground.
The Demons jumped out to a handy lead at quarter time despite their own inaccuracy, but it wasn't until the third quarter where they really put the foot down - kicking 11.5 to Fitzroy's 2.0.
Best were Leahy, Emselle and Groom.
