The final match for the premiership played last Saturday at East Mel bourne, between North Melbourne and Footscray, was a tame affair from start to finish. The game was a distinct disappointment, more especially to Footscray sup porters, who went to the ground confident in the belief that their team would defeat the Northerners. But not only were their hopes dashed to the ground, but Foot scray appeared to put up such a poor fight that their chance of suc cess even at half-time looked hope less. It was hard to believe that this was the same team that beat North in th~.t stirring struggle at Footscray earlier in the season, and hundreds looked forward to the repetition of such a game. The only conclusion that. one could come to was that -North had made a wonderful im...
