Game ReviewCarlton received a real hiding and a football lesson in their worst defeat for the season at the hands of lowly Footscray, the team they beat by 12 goals earlier in the season.
They had only 3 good players in a team which failed to make use of a strong wind and played negative football against it. Barassi was the main culprit – his handball is getting out of hand!
Carlton’s good players were Jesaulenko, Collins and Silvagni, whilst Footscray’s best were Bisset, Thorpe, Whitten, Merrington and Bryant.
