Game Review

No doubt we tried. We did. The effort was there for all to see.

But the Crows, coming off a Grand Final loss in 2017 and armed with Bryce Gibbs, were a complete team notwithstanding their own injury concerns.

The Crows ran away 55 point winners in this top v bottom clash, as the Blues moved to 0 and 7 to start the season.

Surely this record losing stream had to end soon?

2018 Records: This was, needless to say, the first time we'd ever gone 0 and 7 at the start of the season.... a Carlton record.... but was it about to end?
