Game Review

A key member of Carlton’s “mosquito fleet” of brilliant rover-forwards during the 1970’s and 80’s, Ken ‘Bomba’ Sheldon played the last of his 132 games for the Blues in this match, and his team-mates honoured him with a massive 86-point win over the struggling Demons. South Australian recruit Craig Bradley at his scintillating best with a mountain of possessions and six goals. Second-year full-forward Warren Ralph added another five, as Carlton tuned up for the finals in a solid third place.
