Melbourne had been one of the great disappointments of 1992, but on a day where John Northey celebrated his 300th game as a player and coach combined his side rewarded him with a surprisingly easy win.

In front of a hostile Adelaide crowd that pelted Allen Jakovich with bananas, the Demons got off to a fast start with seven goals in the opening quarter, then watched Adelaide kicked a wretched 0.10 in the second.

Crow Michael Murphy was reported for striking both Kevin Dyson and Andy Goodwin. He received two match suspensions for each charge.

Crows coach Graham Cornes reacted to the loss by organising a training drill which saw his players wading through near-freezing water at 7am.

Best were Lovell, G. Lovett and Charles.

Melbourne 14.17.101 d. Fitzroy 11.12.78
Goals - Bennett 5, Beveridge 2, Eishold 2, Taylor 2, Kilmartin 1, Hopgood 1, B. Stynes 1
