Game Review

In this tough contest, Carlton repelled a last-quarter fightback by a finals-bound Essendon, and lit up Princes Park with a victory at last after four straight losses. Concluding a very even season, the top four teams were were St Kilda, Collingwood, Geelong and Essendon, with Richmond and Carlton next. Essendon went on to win the 1965 Premiership - becoming only the second team in VFL history to snatch the flag from fourth position on the ladder, after Carlton in 1945.

Berkley Cox, Brian Buckley and Jeff Trotman all retired after this game.
