Game Review

A fine exhibition of Australian Rules ended with the Blues victorious by 2 points. The win was possibly assisted by Geelong's poor conversion rate of 4-7 in the last term.

Ray Garby's 7 goals represented a career best.

Note:

Saturdays's Sporting Globe has Arthur Hodgson on the wing instead of Ron Hines.
Wednesday's Sporting Globe (p8) mentions him having beaten his opponent Geelong's Ron Lunn and that Hodgson is a life long Carlton supporter.
