Game Review

After failing against the fourth and sixth-placed teams, Carlton recovered brilliantly to easily beat St Kilda in this third ‘Sectional’, and in doing so, scored 100 points for the first time in a VFL match. Remarkably, this meant that the Blues retained second spot, and would play a Semi-Final against Essendon.

Carlton was back in flag contention, but could Worrall's team find their best form?
