In the second leg of the competition last night with Derby, Melbourne built on their strong position in the first leg to deliver a convincing win.  The gaps in the first leg were somewhat reduced in the second leg marking, but were not enough to put the result out of reach. Thank you to our hosts for last nights hospitality.
