Big Red would kick 6 in this enthralling encounter at Princes Park between second and third on the ladder.
The in-form Blues were squeezed down below 300 possessions for the first time in a while whilst the tenacious Cats dominated the middle quarters. In the end a 6 goal burst in the last quarter won it for Carlton, with Whitnall polling the votes, and Brett Ratten with 30 and Kouta with 29 stats being dominant.
This game is remembered fondly by Carlton fans, and is considered one of our best wins in the Home & Away rounds of the 2000's. For more games like this, please click here.
