Game Review

Facing second-placed Melbourne at the MCG, Carlton welcomed back Len Morrison and Pat Considine – the two late withdrawals from the previous week – and included Dick Gorsuch for his first senior match at full-forward.

An excellent second quarter in which the Blues kicked 3.2 to 1.1 was the only bright spot on another forgettable day. The Redlegs ran out five-goal winners and displaced Fitzroy from top spot on the ladder, while Carlton remained second-last, two wins ahead of St Kilda.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 44.7.
