Game Review

This was Carlton's 900th League match. For a summary of Carlton's ninth 100 League games, click here.
The Blues were never in trouble, they were too fast and systematic for the Tigers. The vistors fumbled and turned the ball over under Carlton's pressure. The Blues strength was shown in the last quarter when they scored 3 goals against the wind.

Conley (Carlton)

"J. Conley was a damaging force in nearly every Carlton attack. He gathered the ball with sure hands, and displayed uncanny judgment in developing scoring chances for his forwards. He did a tremendous amount of work, and was still playing strongly at the finish." (The Age June 3)

Did You See?

"Ray Garby (Carlton) swerve, side step, and then pass beautifully to Bennett for an easy goal?" (The Argus June 3)
