Melbourne win by 67 points
Last MFC Game
Fitzroy had done well to keep close to half time, but they came out after the break and conceded 10.4 while not scoring at all - ruining any chance of an upset. The Lions won the last quarter but the damage had already been done.
Barassi was involved in a controversy when the Fitzroy committee accused him of attempting to strike one of their players.
