This is the game that the Blues obsession with Frank Marchesani began, when he kicked two goals from the wing and was the "Roys" best player.
Carlton veteran David McKay was best on ground for Carlton for his performance against Fitzroy. McKay starred against the Lions and his consistent high-marking delighted spectators and commentators alike. Another veteran in Barry Armstrong raked up the possessions during his workman like performance in the midfield. Inside Football Player of the Year.
