Match Statistics

Carlton win by 37 points

Goalkickers: Mike Collins 2, Ross Dillon 1, Greg Parke 1, Peter Sinclair 1


Lucky to have their entire squad to choose from after a spiteful all-in brawl against Essendon a week before, the Demons faced a Barassi-less Blues for the first time since the champion walked out on Melbourne hoping for another win to reinvigorate their season.

They were sorely disappointed, managing just five goals for the day and three after quarter time. The Blues were restricted to 75 points for the day but with just 38 points on the board themselves Melbourne were a disappointment.

Writing in The Age Stan Alves described his side as a "disorganised rabble" and named back-pocket Barry Bourke as the side's only quality performer.

Best were Bourke, Callery and Dillon. Sinclair was replaced by Ritterman during the last quarter. Brewer was an unused reserve.
