Game Review

Carlton edged out a dreadfully inaccurate Geelong in this game before bidding farewell to Rupe Hiskins, Billy Blackman and Stewart McLatchie; all of whom had all served their country with distinction in the First World War. Hiskins had been one of our iconic Light Horsemen, Blackman was wounded in action three times and survived, while McLatchie was awarded a Military Medal for his steady bravery under fire.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 94.2.
