Game ReviewThe Blues were supreme in this match, mainly off the back of 3 key midfielders in their prime - Brett Ratten, Anthony Koutoufides and Scott Camporeale. They would have 34, 33 and 30 possessions respectively, and have a fair few shots on goal (Kouta 4.3; Ratten 0.4) as the Blues danced away from the Dockers at Subiaco. Kouta, in particular was in a run of good form.
The Blues rucking due of Matthew Allan and Trent Hotton would take the honours over Clem Michael (remember him?) and Justin Longmuir, whilst Lance Whitnall would continue his fine 2000 form with 19 possessions, 9 marks and 2 goals. Clive Waterhouse kicked 6 for the losers.
After the win, Carlton were equal second but 3 games behind ladder-leading and all-conquering Essendon.
