Game Review

A most disappointing performance saw Carlton only saved from elimination thanks to both Sydney and Port Adelaide losing their finals. The Blues were never in the contest, with Lance Whitnall their only multiple goalkicker. In an added blow for Carlton, tagger Anthony Franchina would be suspended for the following 2 matches. Coach David Parkin would blast the team, describing them as ‘B-Grade’.

With such a performance at such a critical stage of the season, it was a widely accepted belief that the West Coast Eagles would easily account for the Blues in the following week’s semi-final.
