1995 Ansett Australia Cup Round 1
Melbourne vs West Coast
Saturday 4 March
West Coast win by 34 points
Goalkickers: Andrew Lamprill 3, Sean Charles 3, Jeff Farmer 2, David Neitz 1, Brett Lovett 1, Matthew Febey 1
The Eagles were missing eight of their premiership side, but the Demons were without the injured Steven Febey, Garry Lyon and David Schwarz, as well as the departed Allen Jakovich. Then in the days before the game they lost Stephen Tingay (back), Glenn Lovett (hamstring) and Kevin Dyson (quad). It left with them with a much weakened squad, and needing to ask the AFL permission to use Michael Prentice as a fill-in.
Best were Viney, B. Lovett and Lovell. Sean Charles suffered a broken wrist and Brett Lovett a broken hand. Andy Lovell became the first player to be reported on video evidence, and was suspended two matches for striking.
Charles, Obst, Kowal, Yeats, Neitz, Seecamp, Stynes, Viney, Lovell, B. Lovett, Hall, Prymke, M. Febey, Hilton, Sampson, Norman, Wight, Molloy, Smith, Clarke, Farmer, Irving, Lamprill
