Aggressive tactics by Collingwood helped them to get the upper hand early, kicking two behinds almost immediately and the first goal of the game. Melbourne then came at them, kicking the next two goals. The home side got the last of the quarter to take a narrow lead into the break.

After the change of ends, Collingwood's forwards kept the Melbourne defence busy. They kicked a number of points before finally achieving the first goal, while the home side only got one point.

In a low scoring game, the Magpies pulled away to a comfortable victory after half time.

Mark Gardner was a late withdrawal due to news of the passing of his brother Eric Gardner, he was replaced by Moodie.
