Highest score against Greater Western Sydney

After three disappointing losses to start the season the Demons, and Mark Neeld were under heavy scrutiny from the media - with some speculation that if the Demons lost to a team who had only won two games the previous year that Neeld would be dismissed as coach.

The two sides traded blows for the first three quarters, before the Giants skipped away to a three goal lead at three quarter time. With dark clouds hovering above the Demons responded by registering their greatest ever quarter in a match - with 12.2 more than doubling their score in the last half an hour.

Michael Evans and Jeremy Howe were the driving forces of the comeback with seven goals between them, but Melbourne were flawless in beating up the young Giants in the final term despite losing Mitch Clark to a foot injury.

Best were N. Jones, Byrnes and Evans.

Aaron Davey replaced Jack Viney in the third quarter. Neville Jetta was reported for rough conduct and suspended for two matches.

It was Melbourne's largest score against the Giants to that point.
