Game ReviewCarlton were enjoying a burst of form which would see them only lose three games over the entire season and claim the Premiership. However, Geelong won this encounter by 6 points with future Blue Mario Bortolotto blanketing Carlton's gun centre half-forward Mark Maclure in a physical duel between the two. Perhaps it was this performance that would see Bortolotto join the Blues shortly after...for more on Bortolotto's story, click here.
Geelong rebounded from a shameful performance against Fitzroy to defeat League leaders Carlton by six points at Kardinia Park. The Cats were desperate for the ball and held off a late thrust by the Blues, whose coach Alex Jesaulenko believes have become complacent. - Football Record.
Carlton, who have invariably struggled at Kardinia Park, went down by one goal to Geelong, who had 7% more handball but fell down in other areas. The Blues had 4% more kicks, 39% more marks and 3% more scoring shots. - Ray Young Football Record.''
