In an attempt to boost an attack that had failed three weeks in a row, the Demons made the surprise switch to play ex-defenders John Lord and Tassie Johnson at full forward and centre half-forward respectively. Norm Smith had favoured decoy forwards, rather than the long kick and marking game, but tried something new. It generated more opportunities, but

Melbourne's second loss in a row.

Crompton, Miller and Roet were best. Dawson and Case were reserves.
