Game Review

Carlton would start 1926 on the right note with a 20 point win against Hawthorn, our third in a row against the Mayblooms.

An auspicious day as it was the debut of Harry "Soapy" Vallence, a Club Legend.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 140.0.
