Game Review

Bruce Doull as a ruck rover was the leading goalscorer in this match with 3 goals.

This was the last Carlton game coached by Ron Barassi the last games and also the last Carlton games by Ian Collins, Barry Gill and Bill Barrot. It was also the last season of the VFL ‘Night’ Series, but it would appear again in 1977 under a different format and played during the season, with all the 12 league teams involved not just the sides out side the final 4.
