Geelong started favourites on their visit to the city, owing to recent poor form by the home side, but after getting the jump in the first quarter they failed to handle the greasy conditions and managed just one more goal for the whole game.

Dixon, Lord and Barassi were best.

A meeting to form the Melbourne Old Players Association was held at half time.
