Game Review

One can almost feel the wind at the old Western Oval with this scoreline. Carlton would nag one against the wind, and then effectively end the match in the second quarter with 8 to nil with the wind. Footscray would manage 4 in the third with the zephyr, but could not get within Carlton's score, and with the Blues having the benefit of the wind in the end, the game was over with the Blues 35 points up at the final siren.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 151.8.
