Melbourne's tenth win in a row, and their league record equalling nine straight score of over a hundred points, had much to do with the heroics of Norm Smith. The Demon spearhead kicked 12.10, with seven at quarter time, and 11 at three-quarter time.

Despite Smith's dominance it took until the last quarter the Demons to shake off their determined challengers. In the last quarter when the game was all but won he racked up several of his behinds as teammates tried to set him up to extend his goal tally.

Smith was best, along with McGrath and Baggott.
