Game Review

Look at the scores, and enjoy not only the win, but the knowledge that we probably should've creamed them this day! Paul Schmidt was again terrific up front for Carlton with another 5-goal haul, but Bob Chitty was reported for elbowing Alby Pannam, and was suspended for 2 weeks. The good news was that Melbourne also lost, and after defeating Collingwood, Carlton was now entrenched in fourth place, behind Essendon, Footscray and Richmond.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 4th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 116.5.
