Mark of the Year nomination - Jeremy Howe

Melbourne's third win of the season came largely because of their biggest first quarter lead since Round 2, 1994, as the hapless Suns were pulverised in the first term.

The Demons kicked the first of the second quarter within a minute and it looked as it a rout was on the cards before Gold Coast steadied and nearly won the total score for the rest of the game despite being reduced to zero fully fit players on the bench by the last quarter.

The Suns dominated inside 50 and contested possessions for the rest of the game, but with Brad Green proving a handy forward his goals were the difference as the Demons capitalised on their early lead to win comfortably but not impressively.

Best were Howe, Jones and Tapscott.

James Magner was a late replacement for Jordie McKenzie and replaced Cale Morton in the second quarter when Morton suffered a shoulder injury.
