Game Review

Playing on their home turf, a very even Geelong team proved too good for the Blues in a high-standard clash. Carlton slipped to fourth on the ladder.

Best; B. Diggins, J. Francis, R. McLean, K. Baxter.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 4th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 122.8.


It was noted in Monday's Argus, that Frank Anderson when standing on the mark refused to throw the ball back to Geelong's Glenister. Glenister had to run up to Anderson and pick the ball up which was lying at his (Anderson's) feet.
