Game Review

Carlton struggled to overcome an obviously improved Melbourne outfit.

Carlton defender Des English, was at his stout and burly best against Melbourne to collect a Best on Ground effort. English's fine work on the Blues backline was a good example for his complacent team-mates. Inside Football Player of the Year.

Carlton defeated Melbourne by 10 points but the inaccurate Blues, who by kicking 9.22 had to fight all day, not taking the lead until the final term. - Football Record.
