Newcastle Breakers
Craig Carter, Ralph Maier, Steve Hickman, Adam Sanderson, Andy Roberts, Gary Wilson, Craig Sharpley, David Lowe, Troy Halpin, Clayton Zane, Damian Brown (Glenn Sprod 67')

1 - 2 Melbourne Knights
Frank Juric, Vinko Buljubasic, Fausto DeAmicis, David Cervinski, Andrew Marth, Mark Silic, Joe Spiteri, Damian Vojtek (Oliver Pondeljak 46'), Danny Tiatto, Ante Kovacevic, John Markovski
A cruel blow for the Breakers in that, after playing well and scoring first, they were sunk by a last minute goal after Newcastle failed to properly clear a corner. Markovski, who earlier had an altercation with Craig Carter who believed Markovski had gone in late for a ball, celebrated his winner in front of the Newcastle bench which did nothing for NSW-Victoria relations.

Played (4/11/1995), Suncorp Stadium
Referee : D Crawford , Crowd : 4,682
Brisbane Strikers
Clint Bolton, Alan Hunter, Glenn Gwynne, Mark Battistin, Sean Cranney, Gary Phillips, Frank Farina, Danny Wright (Chris Zoricich 79'), Jason Polak, Rod Brown (Andrew Brayshaw 79'), Troy Cranney

1 - 0 Morwell Falcons
Jim Kourtis, Doug Marcina, Alex Cummings (David Craig 44'), Claudio Canosa, Scott Miller, Michael Reda, Sonny Sevin, John Waddell (Marcus Stergiopoulos 81'), Ernie Tapai (Bobby Despotovski 84'), Warren Spink, Brian Bothwell
Brisbane went all out and Morwell all back. Morwell kept a close eye on Frank Farina and always defended in numbers whereas the Brisbane side played freely and set up several good, but eventually fruitless, chances. Not until the end of the match did Brisbane finally break through for a well deserved winner when Farina was left unattended and headed a cross past Jim Kourtis.

Played (4/11/1995), Marconi Stadium
Referee : J Papanicolas, Crowd : 3,617
Bob Catlin, Robert Stanton, Jean-Paul deMarigny, Mathew Bingley, Andy Harper, Eric Hristodoulou, Paul Souris, Ramon Climente (Darren Iocca 68'), Brad Maloney, Michael Smith (Paul Beltrame 54'), Francis Awaritefe
Awaritefe 7'
1 - 0 Canberra Cosmos
Steve Mautone, Paul Dee, Joe Gagetti (Michael Garcia 79'), Richard Watson, Jason Dunn, Paul Wade, Norman Kelly, Marko Perinovic, Lachlan Armstrong, Willie Hastie, Tony Lemezina (James Baxter 68')
Awaritefe cleaned up a parried shot from Andrew Harper early in the game and that's more or less all Marconi did offensively. Canberra, desperately searching for thier first up win, had much of the game and fully deserved at least another draw if not a win. More so since the referee opted to book Paul Dee for diving rather than Paul Souris for blatantly tripping up his man and fully deserving of a penalty.

Played (5/11/1995), Leichhardt Oval
Referee : Mark Shield, Crowd : 4,511
UTS Olympic
George Bouhoutsos, Dave Barrett, Nick Orlic, Adam Ciantar, Nick Meredith (Elias Augerinos 82'), Peter Tsekenis, Walter Ardone (Branko Milosevic 80'), Norman Tome (Joe Bacak 75'), Kimon Taliadoros, Kris Trajanovski, Milan Blagojevic
Ardone 19' Taliadoros 38' 72'
3 - 0 Wollongong City
Brett Hughes, Bill Gjakovski, Angelo Petratos, Martin Bourke, Richard Lloyd (Robert Middleby 58'), Steve Forshaw, Pedro Ricoy, Lupcho Naumovski, Tony Perinich, Colin Luff, Stuart McLaren (George Jolevski 68')
A Meredith cross was put back into the goalmouth area by Norman Tome and Ardone turned the ball into the goal for Olympic's lead. Despite the efforts of players like Colin Luff, who was Wollongong's leading scorer in last season's youth league, Wollongong was unable to disturb the goal guarded by Bouhoutsos. The dual strike by Kimon Taliadoros, first slipping the ball under Hughes after a through ball and then repeating the dose around the 3/4 mark of the game, sealed the game.

Played (5/11/1995), Olympic Park
Referee : Eugene Brazzale, Crowd : 3,295
South Melbourne
Michael Lilikakis, Con Anthopoulos, Steve Mangos, Mike Valkanis, Tansel Baser (Craig Lewis 68'), Mike Petersen, Sasa Nikolic (Bill Damianos 54'), Steve Panopoulos, Paul Trimboli, Ivan Kelic, Ajim Sherifovski
0 - 2 Sydney United
John Perosh, Velimir Kupresak, Tony Popovic, Mark Babic, Robert Enes (Mark Rudan 89'), Ante Moric, Ante Milicic, Paul Bilokapic (Dominic Usalj 62'), Richard Plesa (Sean Babic 68'), Robert Markovac
Goals : Markovac 25' Zdrilic 51'
South Melbourne opened well but it was a surging run by Markovac which was to prove unstoppable that gave the visitors the lead and a hopeful cross was met by Zdrilic's head and looped over the debuting A-Leaguer Michael Lilikakais. Better still considering two defenders were allegedly marking Zdrilic.

Played (5/11/1995), Hindmarsh Stadium
Referee : Eddie Lennie, Crowd : 8,284
West Adelaide
Peter Blazincic, Richard Alagich, Con Kokkinoplitis, Robbie Slager, Robbie Hooker, Frank Tibaldi (sent off 63'), Jose Iriarte (Pablo Cardozo 40'), Ross Aloisi, Cyrille Ndongo-Keller (Mark Brazzale 83'), Jim Tsekinis (Jim Keramidas 66'), Nathan Day
Goal : Slager 55'
1 - 2 Adelaide City
Jason Petkovic, Mark Yates, Alex Tobin, Milan Ivanovic, Bradley Armour, Goran Lozanovski, John Gibson, Damian Mori, Bradley Hassell, Jamie Perin, Angelo Costanzo (Dino Mennillo 75')
Goals : Gibson 80' Mori 85'
The Adelaide derby was well attended and it was the Sharks who looked like they might continue City's miserable run of losses when Robbie Slager headed a ball in after Jason Petkovic was unable to hold onto a corner. A deflected John Gibson strike and a determined Damian Mori solo effort late in the game shocked the 'home' team. Mori would have benefitted from the two yellow cards shown to Frank Tibaldi who had used some, let's say unorthodox, tactics and was sent off by referee Eddie Lennie.
