Game Review

Carlton won this close match on a dark & gloomy day at Princes Park. This was to be the first and last match for Sean Charles, an ex-Melbourne player who had completed a strong pre-season for the Blues. Charles's leg was broken in a scrum at half-back, and he did not play again for the Blues.

Adelaide has now lost its past seven games in a row at Optus Oval. In the past six games against Carlton at Optus Oval, the Crows have been outscored in the second half 20 goals 33 to Carlton's 63 goals 45. The Crows total score in their past matches against Carlton at Optus Oval is just 1 goal 6 behinds.
