Early in their clash at the MCG, North Melbourne looked to be more than a match for their opponents. With Wayne Schwass running riot the Roos even took a lead into quarter time. In the second term, Yeats broke even on Schwass whose teammates were unable to step up in his absence, and after the break the Demons kicked 14 goals to seven.

The Age said Melbourne simply had too many torches blazing, and its strengths were the Roo's weaknesses - like an open and functioning forward line, led by full-forward Darren Bennett, and including Warren Dean at half-forward and, naturally, the brilliant Garry Lyon on a flank

David Flintoff, who was a late replacement for Greg Healy, played a great game at rover and Stephen Newport delivered his best game yet tagging the dangerous Matthew Larkin.

Earl Spalding suffered a strained hamstring, Darren Bennett a sprained ankle, Sean Wight a bruised shoulder.

In his 50th game Steven O'Dwyer was reporting for abusing an umpire but cleared.
