Game Review

Top of the ladder Essendon had little trouble in defeating Carlton by 35 points in this clash at Windy Hill. However, in one bright spot for the Blues, clever rover Leo Brereton had a big game, and kicked six goals - an impressive effort that he would repeat in the corresponding match twelve months later, when Carlton toppled North Melbourne by 26 points at Arden St.
