Game Review

Jack Hale broke his right leg so badly that he was forced to retire after 123 games, and this 10-point loss dropped the Blues to seventh spot on the ladder.

Lance Regnier was dominating the ruck, then he was sent forward after injuring his knee.
No fewer than seven Carlton players required medical attention after the game, plus Jack Hale had already been taken to hospital.
Jack Hale - fractured right leg
Don McIntyre - strained arm ligament muscles
Jim Francis - bruised ribs
Lance Regnier - knee
Jack Carney - sprained ankle
Jack Skinner - torn thumb ligament
'Mickey' Crisp - injured thigh
George Bailey - wrist
Charlie McInnes - sprained ankle

At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 96.3.

Cricket team of footballers injured
Carlton's champion rover Jack Hale was among 11 players injured in the game against Richmond. Nine of the injured were from Carlton, now coached by former Tiger Percy Bentley. This statistic helped the Tigers to a ten-point win, 13.12.(90) to 12.8.(80), in a tough game at Punt Road. Hale is the worst with a broken right leg suffered in an entanglement with Tiger Bernie Waldron. The injury will certainly prevent Hale from playing for the rest of this season, and could be more serious. Hale is renowned for his fearlessness and aggressive attack on the football. - 100 Years of Australian Rules Football.
