Game Review

Carlton’s champion key forward Mick Grace continued his barnstorming run to the finals with six goals in this big victory over Geelong at Corio Oval. In bright sunshine on a perfect spring day, Grace used his renowned aerial skills to maximum effect - terrorising the Pivotonian defence, and out-scoring the entire Geelong team.

Eleven goals in two matches saw Grace rocket to 43 majors for the season, 10 ahead of team-mate Frank Caine.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 1st spot on the ladder with a percentage of 149.9.
