In the week where the Superleague crisis engulfed Sydney's Rugby League competition the Demons - likely to be a casualty if the same split came to the AFL - suffered their second consecutive defeat of the year.

When the Demons led by six goals in the first quarter and then 34 in the second quarter it looked as if they were going to upset the Night Series premiers, but despite David Neitz holding Wayne Carey quiet the Roos stormed home with a seven goal to two final quarter to win. After being stopped for three quarters Carey kicked the first two goals of the last quarter.

Melbourne should have been even further in front in the second quarter, with wasteful kicking hurting them. As the game went on North's midfield managed to get on top and helped drive the come from behind victory.

Best were Tingay, Prymke and Dyson. Glenn Lovett suffered a hamstring injury in the first quarter and Andrew Obst received a cut knee.
