Game Review

Drenching rain had made the ground very heavy. The centre cricket pitch area was a pool of water. There was some doubt that the match would take place.
Many players were wanting the game postponed until Monday.
The weather had a marked effect on the attendance. The game commenced at 3.09pm.

For the 3rd time this year, the Blues had more scoring shots than their opposition yet still lost, this time around they had 12 more scoring shots but still lost to the Fuschias by 18 points.

Melbourne's score was quite remarkable as actually Princes Park was under water when the match began and a quagmire by it's close.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 6th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 100.0.
