Game Review

Playing his debut game for Carlton against his old side Chris Mitchell, with his five goals swung the match the Blues way. Bob Crimeen, writing in The Sun, asked "Would Geelong have beaten Carlton at Princes Park on Saturday if a fortnight ago the Cats had not cleared big Chris Mitchell to the Blues? Unfortunately, this question will never be answered. But if you said "yes", there is strong statistical evidence to support your belief."
