Game Review


Saturday's Sporting Globe gave the attendance as 25,000
Three debutants were welcomed to Carlton colours in a day to rejoice (with two of the debutants scoring goals in their first game). The Blues thoroughly smashed the Bombers that warms the belly even if it took place 50 or so years before your birthdate!

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 146.3.
