Game Review

The South players lined up before the game and gave three cheers to Carlton captain Paddy O'Brien who led the victorious Victorian side at the recent interstate carnival.
The only time in club history where the Blues went in scoreless at half time. A sad day indeed.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 93.3.
