Game ReviewA match noteworthy for the fact that Melbourne's Jack Mueller was credited with taking 14 marks in one quarter.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 130.4.
Matches PostponedNext week's round of VFL matches were postponed, the first time since the 1923 Grand Final.
Heavy driving rain began to fall on Friday 03 July and at 10am on Saturday VFL officials called off the round.
St.Kilda's delegate wanted the matches to continue claiming that the weather would clear. However, the weather deteriorated and the temperature dropped dramatically on Saturday afternoon.
The Age called for shelter to be provided at each ground for the 60,000 people who each week stand in the outer in all kinds of weather conditions. Many spectators can't afford the extra charge for the grandstands.
Saturday's Herald (p11) said;
Carlton: Pools over the ground; considerably worse than Monday, when League-Association match was played.
Melbourne: Very bad; many pools.
St.Kilda: Half ground under water; definitely unfit for play.
