Game Review

Carlton were the better side during the first half of the game, and managed to lead by 23 points at half-time despite both problems having trouble converting opportunities into goals. Four goals in the third term to Dick Lee got Collingwood back into the contest and gave Blues supporters a scare.

The Blues defence tightened up in the last quarter, only allowing the Magpies two scoring shots, and extended the lead of 4 points at the last break to run out 13 point winners. Horrie Clover was injured during the game and forced to miss the Preliminary Final against Richmond.
