Game Review


Carlton would return to the loser list, but only just, against the mid-table Pies. Carlton sat at 11th spot after this game, 4 points ahead of Hawthorn.

This game marked the end of evergreen Paddy O'Brien's Carlton career as he won a clearance to join Footscray. He had originally joined the Blues from Yarraville.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 11th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 70.7.
