Saturday 16 June - Brisbane Exhibition Ground
Melbourne 6.16 (half time 2-3)
Melbourne win by 3 goals
The locals were at a disadvantage due to the match being played under "Victorian Rules" which they weren't familiar with. Melbourne got the first goal within three minutes, but despite the confusion over the rules the locals managed to keep the score down to 3-2 in the first half.
In the presence of the Governor of Queensland the visitors took over in the second half and ran away with an easy win despite finishing the game one player short after an injury caused one of their number to retire.
Some sources have the scores 4.16 to 1.5 or 5-3.
