Game Review

Eighteen year-old Ken Hands played the first of his 211 games for the Blues in this close-fought win over a committed St Kilda at Princes Park; a match that was also the last for club vice captain Bob Green. The win lifted Carlton to eighth place on the ladder, just 4 points outside the top four, in a season that was shaping as very even.
