Game Review

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 112.8.

Carlton Down Richmond
Richmond were not good enough for Carlton, who kicked 14.10 (94) to 7.8 (50). About 25.000 watched the game, which was nearly always in favor of the Blues, who were more systematic, and played with better judgment than Richmond. The Tigers, however, though outmatched, hung on grittily, playing particularly well in the third quarter, except amongst the forwards.
The feature of the final term was the marking and kicking of Duncan and Clover, the last named scoring a wonderful goal from about halfway. The most conspicuous for Carlton were Clover (6 goals), McLatchie, Farrow, Blackman, Boromeo, and O'Brien."
