Game Review

Carlton shakes off a persistent Footscray side at the Western Oval to record a comfortable 21 point win. The Bulldogs take a narrow two point lead into the half-time break and an upset seems on the cards. But Carlton's class shines through in the second half through the agency of key players such as Wayne Johnston, Jim Buckley, Craig Bradley, Adrian Gleeson and David Rhys-Jones who continually set up forward thrusts for the Blues. - Tony Greenberg Inside Football.

Wayne Johnston was outstanding with 28 disposals, ably supported by the ever improving Adrian Gleeson with 26 disposals and three goals.
