Game Review

A fine exhibition of Australian Rules ended with the Blues victorious by 2 points. The win was possibly assisted by Geelong's poor conversion rate of 4-7 in the last term.

Ray Garby's 7 goals represented a career best.


Saturdays's Sporting Globe has Arthur Hodgson on the wing instead of Ron Hines.
Wednesday's Sporting Globe (p8) mentions him having beaten his opponent Geelong's Ron Lunn and that Hodgson is a life long Carlton supporter.
