Game Review

Ian Collins replaced Bill Bennett (ill) in selected side.
The Blues kept their finals hopes alive with another big win - this time over Footscray at Princes Park. Ron Barassi was at his dynamic best, and kicked four goals as Carlton improved their percentage and consolidated their hold on fifth ladder position.

Ron Barassi was in top form for Carlton in its 33 point defeat of Footscray. - Football Record.

Whitten and Barassi

Battle of the two superstars both known as "Mr. Football" and both opposing playing coaches. Ted jokingly used to say, "If I'm Mr. Football, then Ron is Mrs. Football"

Carlton's 'Find'
Ian Robertson, the boy from Dalyston, is proving to be Carlton's recruit of the year, but the Blues can't seem to make up their mind where to play him. In his 4 senior games, Robertson has started in three key positions - centre, centre half-forward and full-forward. He went ot the goalfront last week when Bill Bennett was dropped out of the side. - Football Record.
