Game Review"There were very few people in the outer ground at Princes Oval, but to make up for this the reserves were comfortably filled."

After a tight first quarter, Carlton's defence strangled Melbourne's inept attack to run out winners by a whopping 89 points.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 211.9.
