Game Review

This was a tight tussle all day with the Blues going down by 6 points.

Ex-Captain Maurie Johnson’s career at Princes Park came to a premature end after this match. The exact circumstances are unclear, but it seems that Mocha had a serious falling-out with new coach Frank Maher, and the situation deteriorated to the extent that one of them had to go. Mocha walked out and joined South Melbourne, where he proved to be as valuable to them as he had been to the Blues. South asked him to play forward more often, and he responded with 27 goals in his 19 games in 1935-’36.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 4th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 141.5.
