Old Xaverians completed a perfected season in winning the Club XVIII (1) premiership by 64 points over Old Melburnians at Sportscover Arena.
The Crocs led at every change, and continued to kick goals at both ends of the ground despite a breeze favouring the Glen Huntly Road end of the ground.
Old Melburnians were held goalless in the first quarter and to just one behind in the final term.
The King – Landrigan Medal for best on the ground was James McDonnell of Old Xavs who also received the Steve Mason Medal as the competition best and fairest and the competition leading goal kicker award on the dais as well.
The win for the Crocs means they were undeafeted in 2012 and makes up for their loss on this day last year to De La Salle.
