Game Review

In their best win of the season thus far, a committed Carlton displaced Essendon from the top four with this 16-point victory at Windy Hill.
Popular ruckman Ken Greenwood went to centre half-forward to provide a viable avenue to goal for the Blues, and each of his three goals lifted his side at important moments in the match.
