Note: During the coming week Garry Crane aged 27 announced his retirement from football for business reasons. This decision shocked Carlton officials as he had good prospects of being selected in the seniors after a best on the ground performance in the Reserves against Fitzroy. Garry is the licensee of the Robert Burns Hotel in Collingwood. (Ref. Age April 07 p23)
However, the club arranged volunteers to help run the pub which allowed Garry the time to train and return to the playing field. After four reserve games his form was good enough for senior selection in Round 10, 1972. Crane would continue his Carlton career and retire in 1976.

Blues' great finish
Carlton Reserves staged a whirlwind finish to win their elimination final by seven points against Essendon. Carlton hit the front at the 27-minute mark of the last quarter and then added another goal right on the siren to clinch the win. They won 15.10.(100) to 14.9.(93). Essendon was unable to match this finishing onslaught although they had led throughout the game. Burly Essendon ruckman Gary Grainger dominated the ruck duels and used handball very constructively to continually put his side into attack. He combined well with rover Don Goss, whose deadly accurate kicking for goal enabled him to notch five for the match. Red-headed John Warden was brilliant at centre half-forward for Carlton and his strong marking was a key factor in Carlton's victory. - The Australian.
