Game Review

Carlton's tough, nuggety rover Jack Spencer kicked five goals in this fighting loss to Collingwood in front of a huge crowd at Princes Park. The Blues came back from four goals down at three-quarter time to almost snatch victory. After this game, two wins and two losses left us sixth on the ladder, but only one win out of the four.
