Game Review

Carlton dominated the Cats in the opening quarter, and built a 27-point lead at half time, but that quickly evaporated when Wade and Sharrock for the Cats contributed five of their eight goals in the third term to give Geelong a 14-point break at the last change.

The Blues had their chances in the final term, however inaccurate kicking for goal produced 0.6 and destroyed their chances of a Grand Final appearance. This game would mark the end of a fine playing career for Gordon Collis, after 95 games for the Blues.
