Game ReviewA close win, despite being 30 points down at the last change (A record...see below) and the Blues kept in touch with the top of the ladder. Poor kicking by the Blues almost cost them the game, despite kicking one less goal, the Blues ended up winning this game (simliar to the 1968 Grand Final where the Bombers kicked more goals than the Blues but still lost the Grand Final).
At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 114.1.
