Game Review

A six-goal second quarter by a switched-on Blues outfit set up this deeply satisfying win at Victoria Park, and just about ensured that Collingwood would finish the season below Carlton yet again.
At full-forward for Carlton, "Turkey Tom" Carroll steered through another four goals, to retain his leadership in the League's goal-kicking award.
