Game Review

This defeat would be our 14th - and last - in a row, to end our worst-ever losing sequence of games.

John McFarlane created history in this, his only League game, to became the only player at Carlton to play his whole senior career when Carlton didn’t score a goal. Imagine that in today's day and age - being part of an entire game and never seeing your team score a major...

At the end of this round Carlton were in 8th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 34.5.

"Their system was palpably too much for Carlton, who, whilst offering their strongest resistance, proved tolerably easy victims. It was only during the latter portion of the third quarter that Carlton played more than a minor part; and even then they made very trifling headway, their best efforts being spent in the gaining of behinds. In the final bout South again asserted themselves, and appropriated all the points.
In physique, as well as in play, Carlton were the inferior company, and though the proceedings were deviod of every semblance of spite, weight was a telling factor in the combat. One item in the first quarter redounded to the credit of the dark blues, namely, their wingman, Rowland's (Roland's), great run, that covered nearly the length of the ground, and wound up with a behind."
"On the ball, without a change the whole game through, Jo. McShane was easily first in the Carlton company, marking and kicking as well as in his best Geelong days, and giving "the retort courteous" to critics who had mentioned him as a back number."
(Australasian May 17 p21)
