A dominant second quarter has seen Carlton record its second win in a row against Essendon at Windy Hill. The Round 3 clash was always going to have the attention of the fans, with the traditional rivals looking to build on momentum after both recording impressive Round 2 victories. It would be the Blues’ day, however, with the returning Nic Newman and Tom De Koning impressive alongside the clean midfield work of Lochie O’Brien and Will Setterfield. The goal-kicking ability of Ben Crocker and Toby Wooller was once again on display, with a combined six goals helping the Blues to a 49-point win on enemy territory. Manic forward pressure and an ability to restrict the Bombers to just three goals after the first quarter was a massive highlight for the day, with the team maintaining the fight for an entire four quarters.

The AFL has finally been forced to admit defeat to COVID-19 restrictions, with the VFL season officially called off for the second year in a row.

Officials have been desperately exploring all options to get the finals played and crown a premier, but ongoing lockdowns and state border closures have made the task insurmountable, with all 22 clubs notified of the sad but unavoidable decision on Wednesday. Footscray will be recognised as the 2021 minor premiers for its undefeated 10-0 campaign, but no premiership will be awarded and the J.J. Liston Medal vote count has also been called off without a winner.
