For the first time a new VFA rule was in play that meant the ball was in play from the moment it left the boundary umpire's hand, rather than when it first hit the ground.
Melbourne were comfortable leads at half time, before South struck back with the first two goals after the break. The home side got back in front ,but tired badly in the last quarter
Best were Christie, Sholl and Moodie.
