Geelong win by 19 points
Another soaking wet day in the city saw another defeat for Melbourne, their 6th in a row.
In a match that lacked sizzle Geelong opened up a commanding lead in the first quarter and never surrendered it. They slackened off slightly in the last and allowed Melbourne to make the scoreline respectable, but the fact of the matter was that their loss left them second last - and only above bottom placed Carlton on percentage.
Both clubs were fined five guineas for being several minutes late in taking the field after half time.
After the defeat the team left to play a game in Sydney against a combination of local league players.
