Melbourne had earned a surprise win over the Eagles a week before, while Carlton had been badly out of form so the result was not clear before the game started but in the end the Blues were comfortable winners. With 24 more scoring shots the result could have been a humiliation.

The two sides were even in the first quarter, but Garry Lyon was put out of the game by a bruised calf during the second quarter and Neil Balme couldn't cover his loss. Melbourne won the last quarter narrowly but it was a small victory on an otherwise disappointing day.

Best were Tingay, M. Febey and Viney. The Demons had two players reported, Jim Stynes for striking Justin Madden with an open hand during the second quarter and Phil Gilbert for striking Brent Heaver in the first quarter but both were cleared. Stynes claimed he was trying to push his opponent away and had sleepless nights after being reported, saying "I pride myself on having a clean record and obviously there was no malice in the action, it's just part of the game". Madden admitted he'd dived, calling his fall an "Academy Award-winning performance". The umpire agreed that Madden exaggerated the contact but that it was still worthy of a report. His clearance allowed him to play for Victoria.

Greg Williams had 44 possessions but didn't received a Brownlow Medal vote - votes which would have won him the medal.
