Melbourne took a poor record at Corio Oval into their 500th VFL match, and were beaten comfortably after kicking just two goals in the second half. Despite perfect conditions for football it was a poor game, and one of the reasons given was that during the first quarter the ball was under-inflated. A new ball was provided for the second term, but this one was declared to be too hard and the match continued with the original one.

The visitors were superior in aerial play, but Geelong were faster, better in the midfield and took their chances better.

Best was Fischer, Vine and Ogden. Hooper suffered a bruised hip and concussion and was replaced by Deague. Beames and Taylor injured ankles.

Melbourne 25.18 d. Geelong 14.8
Goals - Gibb 7, Walsh 6, McKenzie 4, Smith 3, Pemberton 3, Adams 2
Best - N. Smith, Pemberton, Young
