Game Review

In 1925, Carlton had a happy knack of defeating the VFL's new teams in our debut encounters. Happily, that trend continued in Round 12 with a win over Footscray. We had also beaten Hawthorn and North Melbourne in round 4 and round 9 respectively.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 9th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 79.2.
