Game Review

Carlton's seven goals to one in the last quarter finished off the Swans by 52 points in this one-sided contest at the Lake Oval.

After struggling all week with a sprained finger, John Goold was replaced in the selected side by David McKay. And in a landmark moment for the club, Barry Armstrong replaced Ian Robertson during the last quarter. Armstrong would go on to play in two Premiership teams during his 204-game career for the Navy Blues.

Carlton, with Brent Crosswell back after three weeks 'penance' in the Reserves as a result of some disciplinary action, beat South Melbourne. - Football Life.
