Game Review


Carlton's bustling centreman Berkley Cox had re-invented himself as a dangerous half-forward flanker during this season, and he featured again in this game - kicking three goals as the Navy Blues beat Essendon by six points in a thrilling and willing contest at Windy Hill.

The Bombers dropped to fifth after this defeat, and Carlton remained sixth.
