Game Review

After leading by five goals at three quarter time, Carlton actually trailled by a point in the dying stages before a late major snatched the points back.

Harry Hollingshead's 5 goals equalled the number of weeks he would miss for striking the Bomber's Frank Kelly. Kelly copped 3 matches for responding in kind.

The Blues were 3 from 3.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 1st spot on the ladder with a percentage of 106.6.
