Melbourne win by 6 points
Melbourne had lost two of their first three, but the losses had been against the two best teams in the competition - and with three debutants in the side they recorded a much needed victory over the Maroons.
Despite the victory it was Melbourne's lowest score against Fitzroy in a decade. It left the Reds a game and percentage outside of the four.
Vine, Ogden and Mueller were best. Colin Niven was reported for striking and elbowing but cleared on both charges.
Melbourne 15.12.102 d. Fitzroy 15.11.101
