Game Review

The Blues' height proved decisive as key forwards, Stephen Kernahan and Earl Spalding proved the difference. This was also the first time in 11 years that Melbourne has failed to trouble the scorers in the last quarter.

Interesting Fact: This would be the last time for almost 20 years that a team would feature two Irishmen, when Jim and Bryan Stynes ran out for Melbourne. What does this have to do with Carlton? Well, the team that again featured two Irishmen was actually Carlton in Season 2011.
