Game Review

After suffering humiliation the previous week, the Blues made seven changes to their side, and kept South Melbourne to just one major score for the whole match. Although a lot of the Bloods' missed shots were simply unforgiveable, Carlton's Percy Pitt nailed two majors in an impressive debut, while full-back Frank Hince was impassable all day in a brilliant display.

One win and one loss now had the Blues sitting sixth on the ladder, ahead of two winless teams in Melbourne and South Melbourne.
