Game Review

The Blues would trounce the Demons by a more than comfortable margin, but perhaps this game would be better remembered down the track as a game where a first year player in Alex Jesaulenko would begin to display the skills which are now famous in the football world.

One about-to-debut Blue in Dennis Munari was there at the game and has written for the Blueseum about his views on the game and Jezza's performance in particular.
