Game Review

Whether it was the interest in debutant Ron Barassi or not, a Glenferrie attendance record of approximately 36,000 would attend this game. The Barassi era would begin strongly with a 37 point victory, almost identical to the opening quarter margin where the Hawks were kept scoreless.

Blues on Top
Carlton burst into the limelight with a resounding victory over Hawthorn at the Glenferrie Oval, to take top place on the ladder. Glenferrie is a test for any side, the Blues won by matching the robust Hawks in physical strength and outpointing them in teamwork. The Blues displayed great teamwork and have abundant strength in many facets. They also appear to have improved in the roving department. - Football Record.
