Collingwood win by 35 points
Billy Deans (also with South Melbourne)
Holding nothing more than a mathematical chance of making the top four, the Demons further harmed their chances of a finals appearance with a comfortable loss to the Magpies.
Melbourne played well for three quarters, and were within striking distance going into the last but were eclipsed from then on and kicked inaccurately when they did have scoring chances.
