Game Review

The Blues balanced the season ledger at at 2 losses and 2 wins in thrashing Essendon by ten goals at Princes Park, and celebrated Carlton Legend John Nicholls' 150th match in style. Interestingly, Nicholls would also celebrate his 250th match with a similar strong victory against Essendon some 7 years later.
This good win lifted the Blues to sixth - now just one win outside the top four.

Carlton defeated Essendon by 10 goals with John Nicholls dominant in the ruck and up forward for the Blues. - Football Record.
