Melbourne's poor performance in conceding 10 goals in a row to end their previous match and Hawthorn's strong performance against the better fancied Carlton had given some hope that the Mayblooms might spring an upset against the Demons, but after a tight first half the home side ran away with a comfortable victory.

It was not an attractive game as the two sides scrapped throughout the day, but the victory lifted the Reds' record to 2-2 for the season - having had 18 different goalkickers for the 48 goals in their first four games.

Best was Gordon Ogden. McNamara was 19th man.

Sid Meehl and Harry Long were both reported for failing to return to their mark. Both were found not guilty. Long was also booked for elbowing and striking, and received a four match ban on the striking charge.
