Game Review

On the surface, a 20 point win looks comfortable enough. But have a look at the scoring shots and you can see that the Blues of 1943 had more than their fair share of 'kicking behinds' - in a goal scoring sense - something that would hurt them all year.

Carlton remained in 1st on the ladder with a percentage of 154.7.
