Game Review

A woefully inaccurate St Kilda team stuck with the Blues until half-time in this game at the Junction Oval, but the Blues clicked into top gear after that and blew the Saints away. 'Soapy' Vallence continued his great form at full-forward for the Blues, with 5 goals.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 1st spot on the ladder with a percentage of 119.4.
