Game Review


Except for another Bosustow 'moment' (Goal of the Year - for a smother off the boot of Ian Nankervis and a brilliant snap over his shoulder), it was a relatively easy finals victory.


It appears that Carlton rover Rod Ashman's knee injury may be more serious than first anticipated. The talk is that Rod will have an operation after the finals. Big question is will Carlton take a gamble and play him in the Grand Final? Seems doubtful at this stage - Ray Shaw Inside Football
