Game ReviewThis crucial battle for a top four place was taken easily by the Tigers in extremely heavy and windy conditions. After this, the question of a finals berth was simplified. Carlton simply had to win their last game against Essendon, and pray that the results of other matches would fall in their favour. Sadly, this was not to be.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 120.1.
