Game Review

The start of the match was delayed 5 minutes as lawyers and officials finalised the transfer of Bill Lokan to Fitzroy. He had earlier been issued a permit to play but the SANFL lodged an appeal delaying the process.

1983 Sterling Cup 'Night' Premiership Team

Blues hoodoo ends - Carlton finally won their first night flag after playing in five losing grand finals (1956/58/65/77/81). They were the last of the VFL clubs to win a night premiership. The game was originally scheduled for July 19 but was cancelled five hours before the opening bounce due to a waterlogged field and predictions of further heavy rain. For June 19th both teams refused to name their final line-up - instead Carlton named a squad of 25 and Richmond a squad of 29. The following week Carlton announced their full line-up but Richmond persisted with the gamesmanship, naming a squad of 23.Carlton's captain Mike Fitzpatrick did not play due to injury. With vice-captain Geoff Southby also out, Wayne Johnston was notified just 10 minutes before taking the field that he would be acting captain for the night.

Carlton won its first ever night premiership led by acting Captain Wayne Johnston. Four sons of ex-players played, Mark Buckley - Brian Buckley, Scott Howell - Jack Howell, Peter Bosustow - Bob Bosustow and Mark Williams - John Williams.

Prizemoney - Carlton $115,000, Richmond $90,000
