Game Review

Future Premiership star Frank 'Silver' Caine wore navy blue on to the field for the first time in this match against St Kilda at the Junction Oval, and enjoyed a big win over the perennial cellar dwellars (well, perennial in a pre-National Draft sense).

In other matches, Fitzroy remained unbeaten with a good win over South Melbourne, and Collingwood defeated Essendon at East Melbourne. Those results strengthened the Blues' hold on third spot, by establishing a two-win buffer over the two losing sides. The top four was now Fitzroy, Collingwood, Carlton and Essendon, with South Melbourne outside the four on percentage.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 100.9.
