Golden Gate Park, San Francisco
Melbourne won by 5 points
Goalkickers: Unknown 10
After a torrid, violent clash in Honolulu which Melbourne won by 12 points, the two sides met again in San Francisco. Despite the umpires being asked to keep more control of the game the match was still a brutal affair. Doug Wade had his eye split by Bernie Massey, ironically the day after Norm Smith had told Wade he'd be a better player if he didn't fight so much.
The match was played 15 a side. Geelong led 42-22 at half time, then Melbourne outscored them 7.7 to 3.6 for the rest of the game.
3DB provided a direct call of the game back to Australia.
