Game Review

Carlton (as we all know) had won the flag in 1970 whilst the Bombers had languished in 11th place (out of 12). The Windy Hill men were on the way to another inglorious 11th finish in 1971. My God, it was enjoyable!

Essendon were no match for the Blues for most of the day and only made any significant ground after the Blues seemingly took their collective foot off the pedal upon reaching a match-winning 32 point lead midway through the last quarter.

Bill Barrot, picked up mid-season after a brief sojourn at St Kilda, was brilliant and was proving a particularly clever acquisition.
