Game ReviewIn front of what was decribed as a "sparse crowd" the Blues beat the Fuchsias by 58 points.
"Carlton had a day at home when they met Melbourne on Saturday. The game was far better to watch than the scores read. Melbourne have a good team, at times a brilliant one, but some how or another it never gets going at the right time. The outstanding feature of the game was the six goals kicked without a single behind by Carlton, four of them being snapshots. The veteran Topping re-appeared in Carlton colors and played as well as ever he did. Melbourne put up a game fight, but victory was not to be their's."
