Game Review

After being smashed the week before by Richmond, the Blues were huge underdogs against the rating premiers on their home turf. The game started as predicted with the Crows getting a jump on the Blues and had a lead of 25pts at quarter time. The start of the second term produced a different looking Blues outfit which saw the younger core of players step up, including Whitnall, Allan and Beaumont, and snatch the win. Brett Ratten's goal on the boundary line in the pocket was among one of the goals of the year. Carlton had its season highest handball tally, it surpassed 152 times against the Crows. Seven Carlton players all had 10 or more handballs while only eight Blues had 10 or more kicks for the game.

This game is remembered fondly by Carlton fans, and is considered one of our best wins in the Home & Away rounds of the 1990's. For more games like this, please click here.
