Game Review

When Carlton (eleventh) met North Melbourne (tenth) at Princes Park in this round, both clubs knew their seasons were on the line. But after a fierce and even first quarter, the Blues got right on top and came away with a morale-boosting victory by almost ten goals. Busy rover Leo Brereton kicked 6 majors for the Blues, while youngster Wes Lofts added another three from centre half-forward.

Carlton climbed back to tenth on the ladder after this much-improved performance, still in with a remote chance of making the finals.

Players celebrating the win and Brereton's 6 goals, placing him third on the VFL goal kicking list with 26
L-R: Dennis Strauch, Wes Lofts, Chris Pavlou, Barry Bryant, John Chick (vice capt.), Leo Brereton (drinking), Maurie Sankey and Bruce Comben (capt.)
