Another week, another win for the Demons as they strengthened their position as premiership favourites and quelled any lingering doubts that they deserved their position at the head of the table despite not getting out of first gear.

On the back of their own unaccuracy in front of goal and a dominant first half by the trio of Dixon, Tunbridge and Ridley, South were already three goals behind going into the third quarter and were then blown away by a rampant Melbourne performance where they slammed on 8.5 to nothing.

With the pressure off and an eleven goal lead at the last change the visitors took their foot off the gas and allowed South to make the score more respectable. The win was their tenth straight. Just the third time they'd managed the feat in the one season - the other one being 1956 when they won 13 in a row. It was their best score against South since 1943.

Dixon, Tunbridge and Ridley were Melbourne's best. Ridley and Trevor Johnson were replaced by Rowarth and Leahy in the last quarter.
