Game ReviewCarlton continued their strong start to the season with their second win in a row, this time against Souths at home.
A even game up until three quarter time. South could not cope with the Blues' pressure in the final term who ran out comfortable winners. Jack Hale gave a great exhibition of roving.
Carlton sat on top of the ladder on percentage of 139.6 from Footscray, the only other unbeaten team in the competition after Round 2.
