Game ReviewA loss which would come back to haunt the Blues. Carlton conceded top position to the despised foe and would be unable to regain it.
As such they forfeited the right to challenge any finals loss. This match could be argued to have cost the club the flag of 1930.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 2nd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 137.8.
