In a fiery match the Demons continued to work towards assuring themselves a spot in the top four with a huge win over their traditional rivals. Centre of the action was Pie Wayne Weideman who fought with Frank Adams, Kerry Rattray, Hassa Mann and Tony Anderson throughout the day, but to no avail in the end.

The Demons opened with a strong first quarter with the wind, 11 scoring shots and restricting Collingwood to two points. The Magpies were even better, but they allowed Melbourne to kick a goal and take a one point lead to half time.

Both sides slowed down in the third, and the game was finely poised going into the last term before Melbourne unleashed and took advantage of their tiring opponents with a ten goal fourth quarter to register a ten goal victory.

Best were Massey, Mann and Barassi.

Despite the huge victory - and the best percentage in the league by 12.5% - the third placed Demons could still miss out if they dropped a game on fourth placed St Kilda over the last two weeks of the season.
