|Reports:||Injuries: I.Nicoll (bruised knee)|
Bill Barrot swung the game when he was moved away from Ian Robertson in the centre to full forward and against Wes Lofts scored 8 goals. He would do it again later in the season - in the Grand Final no less.
Injuries may have played a part, with Syd Jackson replacing Ian Nicoll with a bruised knee at half time. But Barrot's burst would break this game and the Tigers would be triumphant.
1972 Grand Final, which produced a whopping total of 327 points.
