Geelong win by 79 points
On a day where the Febey twins became the first in VFL/AFL history to both play 100 games, Melbourne's wretched start to the season continued with another low score in a huge loss.
At one point in the third quarter Melbourne were within a point before the Cats kicked 12-goals unanswered to record a big win.
Best were Stynes, Charles and Farmer
Geelong 17.15.117 d. Melbourne 6.11.47
