Ron Barassi coached the side in place of Norm Smith who was in Adelaide with the Victorian team, and he was handed a simple victory for his coaching debut.

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.
