Game Review

A commendable win considering the injury list. Serious injuries received in this match saw the enforced retirements of Frank Martin and Alec Farrow.

Their loss was somewhat offset by the fine debut of Ray Brew who kicked two goals.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 8th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 74.5.
