The Demons finals aspirations had taken a hit with their loss to Footscray a week earlier, and they travelled to Waverley knowing that a loss to Ron Barassi and the Roos would all but end their year with two months of the season to play.

Ex-Bomber Ray Smith had a quick introduction to his teammates before debuting. Smith had trained at Windy Hill two hours before being named in the Melbourne side. His clearance went through on Friday and by Saturday he was lining up alongside his new teammates at Waverley.

By 5pm it was North who had enhanced their finals prospects and almost ended those of their opponents. Wayne Schimmelbusch cut the Demons to ribbons on route to five goals, and after Sam Kekovich had been beaten comfortably by Gary Hardeman at centre half-forward in the first quarter he went to centre half-back and played an important role.

Best were Hardeman, Alves and Fowler
