Game Review

Carlton fell away in this last game of the year. Whether it was the sheer strength of the Pies, who after all had been at the top for most of the year, or the fading chances of playing in the finals, the Blues had their worst loss of the year and finished 6th.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 6th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 106.5. They were one win and percentage from playing in the finals that year.
