Game Review

Carlton would comfortably dispose of their lower ranked opponent, welcoming 2 new Blues at the same time.

This was our 15th win over Melbourne in a row, but our golden run over them would break in the next year or two.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 132.8.


B: Dick Harris Ernie Jamieson Tommy Hughes
HB: Norman Clark Billy Payne (acting capt.) Bert Cowley
C: Harry Matheson Rod McGregor George Bruce
HF: Jack Wells Billy Dick Jim Marchbank
F: Alex Barningham Vin Gardiner Andy McDonald
Ruck: Archie Wilson Ned Bowen Martin Gotz
Coach: Fred Elliott


Debuts: Tommy Hughes, Bert Cowley
50 Carlton Games: Dick Harris
Interesting Fact: This was the second consecutive away win against this opponent at exactly the same margin, a feat we've managed 6 times in our entire VFL to AFL history.
