Game Review

The Blues went into this game playing injured men in Martin Gotz (knee) and Mick Grace (ribs). Gotz broke down from almost the first bounce and they were virtually more than one man short for the entire game.
The navy blue juggernaut rolled on and registered a sixth straight win in this match at the Brunswick St oval, defeating top-four challengers Fitzroy by 12 points. Carlton’s best once again was Frank Caine, whose four goals kept him on top of the League sharp-shooters list. Another forward in good form was Norm Yeo of Essendon. His two majors and numerous assists helped the Same Old to a surprise win over Collingwood at East Melbourne, allowing Essendon to leapfrog the Magpies into second place.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 1st spot on the ladder with a percentage of 168.2.
