Game Review

Richmond's gun forward Royce Hart went into this match under an injury cloud, and was kept in check all day by a cohesive Carlton defence. The Blues led at every change, before Richmond staged a comeback midway through the last quarter and drew to within nine points. John Nicholls and Robert Walls then both scored majors, and Carlton won comfortably.
