Game Review

Carlton stunned the ladder leading (and eventual Premier) Melbourne with this 37 point win at the MCG. Despite a relatively close game at the last change, Carlton kicked 7 goals to put the game beyond any doubt.

We were in 7th spot with 3 rounds to go - still 2 games off the 3rd placed team.
