Game Review

The Blues of 1943 were sometimes an errant lot in front of goal - this Round 6 performance is a good example. 4 more scoring shots than Essendon, yet we don't take home the points, would be something of a story for the year.

Playing in perfect weather conditions the inaccurate Blues had led throughout match only to be beaten with the last kick of the day.

The Blues dropped another spot on the ladder to be 7th with a percentage of 104.8.
