Game Review

Carlton played a premiership brand of football to soundly defeat the Tigers at Princes Park. The Blues won by 26 points but gave the impression that if pushed, they could have rattled on extra goals with ease. It was the Blues first "home" win over Richmond since 1970 and by far one of their most convincing. - Football Record.
