Game Review

Carlton lost the ‘Night’ grand final by 8 points. This was the first time in their 7 ‘Night’ games that Carlton scored a century (100 points in a match).

John Benetti was reported for striking the fearsome St Kilda tough-man Eric Guy and suspended for 2 matches. Graham Gilchrist was found not guilty of stiking John Coffey.
