Game Review

At the end of this round Carlton were in 6th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 110.2.


"With storm clouds blocking the light, the Melbourne-Carlton game at the M.C.G. on Saturday finished in semi-darkness. Time on during the afternoon was exceptionally high, due to the wind and out-of-bounds infringements, a total of 27 minutes, finishing the game just before 5.30 o'clock. Melbourne took the field at the start several minutes behind the usual time because of the late arrival of one of the defenders.
Next month, the League is to start its matches 15 minutes earlier." (Age May 10 p20)
