The Demons horror start to the year continued as they dropped to 0-4 with a loss at their adopted home ground for the day. Footscray jumped them and were up to 40 points in front in the third quarter before a belated comeback cut the margin to just over four goals.

Melbourne were only kept off the bottom by having a far superior percentage in their four losses to St Kilda and Fitzroy. Neale Balme said: "We simply weren't able to kick it where we wanted to kick it or handball it where we wanted to handball it".

Best were Neitz, Smith and Lyon
