The experts were tipping a North Adelaide victory as they had beaten Sturt twice during the season and were the reigning dual Premiers having won the flag in 1930 and 1931, but someone forget to tell the Double Blues as Sturt more than matched it with the Roosters in the first quarter and led by 13 points at quarter time. The second quarter was as the first with the Blues going into the half time break with a handy 15 point lead. In the third quarter Sturt upped the ante to completely outplay the shocked Roosters kicking 7.6 to 1 behind for the term. The last quarter saw North come back, but ultimately the Double Blues cruised to victory by 41 points. Better players included full forward Gordon ‘Grassy’ Green who kicked an amazing 9 goals from 10 shots for the day, Charlie Parsons at centre half back, Alby Wundersitz in a forward pocket, centre half forward Alf Mussman and captain Victor Bateman.
