Carlton were never in the hunt against the Bombers in this match. Essendon sauntered to a very easy victory with Scott Lucas playing well for the Bombers.

One of the few highlights for Carlton fans for the day was the team's first goal. Corey McKernan marked the ball on the wing, had a couple of bounces, ran to the 50 metre line where he then booted a lovely goal.

Justin Murphy had 31 possessions, Simon Beaumont 27 and Adrian Hickmott 26.

For Carlton it was a notable match in that it was the final appearance for Ang Christou, Michael Mansfield, Sam Cranage, Trent Hotton, Jordan Doering and Lindsay Smith in the Navy Blue guernsey. It would also be Wayne Brittain's last game as coach.

As of 2019, both teams have won the same number of premierships.
