Game Review

Furture Carlton player 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.

Record Score

At the time, this match set a new record for the highest combined score between these two sides. But a little over two years later, it was surpassed by the 1972 Grand Final, which produced a whopping total of 327 points.
