Game Review

The disappointment of losing this match of the day to Collingwood at Victoria Park was compounded by another injury to Carlton's emerging star Garry Crane. After ten weeks out, Crane's brief comeback ended before three-quarter time - finishing his season, and dealing a blow to the Blues' finals hopes.
