Game Review


Highlight of the day was Bruce Doull's landmark achievement of surpassing John Nicholls' games record for Carlton.

Unfortunately, Footscray spoiled the party with their first win at Princes Park for 21 years, achieved on the back of a bag of goals by their star full-forward Simon Beasley.

Bulldogs full-forward Simon Beasley bagged nine goals in Footscray's opening round win against Carlton. Beasley was simply too tall for Bruce Doull and he outmarked the Blues defender on several occassions. Carlton had good players in Tom Alvin, Paul Meldrum and David Rhys-Jones but trailed all day against superior opponents. - Football Record.
