Game Review

Renato Serafini, in his debut for the Blues after crossing from Fitzroy, kicked a late goal (with his first kick) to set up the Blues' win.

Carlton put another temporary stop to South's hopes of making the Final Five when reserve Renato Serafini kicked a goal at the 22 minute mark and shepherded for Rod Ashman to do likewise minutes later. Prior to this, the Swans had grabbed the lead after trailing early in the game, which would rank with one of the worst of the season in the Lakeside Oval mud. The Blues late run and win gave them their sixth in a row against South. - Football Record.
