Game Review

After a modern game where you think the Blues missed some shots on goal, just sit and think about Round 4, 1918, a game in which we still doubled the Bomber's score despite scoring 8 goals 27 behinds. The Blues appeared to clearly have Essendon's measure all game - Essendon had only just rejoined the competition and had only won 1 game to this point in the year.

After 4 rounds, Carlton sat in 3rd spot with a percentage of 111.4 and were 4 points off top place.
