Game Review

Carlton's up and down season continued with this away game loss to the second-placed Bulldogs. Opening with 0.5 was bad enough, but 8.18 - 26 scoring shots - was just not good enough against a more accurate Footscray outfit.

Meanwhile, across town, North Melbourne's big win over St Kilda pushed the Blues back to seventh.
