After a nightmare season in which they had already kicked four goals or less in a match four times in nine weeks the Demons finally got the chance to torment somebody else with a thumping win over the winless, and wooden spoon bound, Fitzroy.

Only the Lions defence which stood firm under constant pressure stopped their side from being thumped even more. Relishing the chance to play a side clearly worse than themselves the Melbourne players moved the ball quickly and ran the Lions off their feet.

Too strong physically, the lead at quarter time was almost match winning in itself before being extended at every break. Melbourne's quarter time score was bigger than Fitzroy's entire four quarter score.

Best were Johnson, Davis and Williams. Emselle (bruised shoulder) was replaced by Feldman at three quarter time.
