Game ReviewThe Blues would win their way into a Preliminary Final showdown against Essendon with a 9 goal victory over the Eagles. Carlton were helped by the idiosyncrasies of the finals system, which dictated that the MCG must host at least 1 final each week – by rights, the final should have been played in WA. Michael Sexton scored the first goal for Carlton to trigger a powerful performance.
West Coast's Ashley McIntosh had been in career best form this year & was widely tipped to be the All-Australian full back yet was soundly beaten by Aaron Hamill in Carlton's win over the Eagles in Perth earlier in the year. The same was to take place this day as again Hamill was instrumental in setting up an early lead & led McIntosh "a merry dance".
This match was notable as being the last match Michael Malthouse coached for West Coast – he would move on to Collingwood in 2000, being replaced by Ken Judge.
