Game Review

Carltons' shock loss to Hawthorn - their first ever win over the Blues after 14 years of trying, and 25 straight losses - was a costly one. The Blues were tipped out of the top four.

Prime Minister Robert Menzies, an avid Carlton supporter, visits the rooms of the opposition team for the second time this year - and Carlton lose again!!!! Hawthorn score a memorable win, their first ever against an inaccurate Carlton, the final scores; 13.8.(86) to 11.17.(83). - 100 Years of Australian Rules Football.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 127.3.
