Melbourne had confirmed their place in the finals with a battling win over Footscray the previous Saturday, and Collingwood couldn't be displaced from the top two - so bragging rights in advance of a potential second or third round finals showdown was the only thing the clubs had to battle for.

Collingwood looked every inch the top two team in the first three quarters before Melbourne struck back to make the margin respectable in the last term. The moral victory was Collingwood's, and they could enjoy a fortnight off, but Melbourne could now concentrate on their semi final against Carlton a week later.

Barassi was 19th man, playing in the fourth quarter after two earlier appearances where he was unused.

Collingwood 11.8 d. Melbourne 8.8
