On Grand Final eve, South Melbourne's champion full-forward Bob Pratt was hit by a brick truck when alighting from a tram. He was replaced at full-forward by Roy Moore. Neither Moore nor Laurie Nash at centre-half-forward were able to break free of their opponents (Charlie Dibbs and Jack Regan respectively), helping Collingwood to win the match.
