Game Review

A dominant, 5-goal last quarter gave the Bombers an impressive win at Windy Hill, as Carlton fell to sixth place on the ladder. This game was notable because Blues champion Jim Francis notched up only the second goal of his illustrious career for the Blues - 111 games (and six seasons) after he kicked his first major in round 10, 1934!

At the end of this round Carlton were in 6th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 101.2.
