Game ReviewBoom WA recruit Syd Jackson was Best on Ground in the centre in his first game for Carlton, after having to wait a year for his clearance. Remarkably, Syd's opponent Barry Lawrence (also making his debut) was second-best on the ground, according to ‘The Sun’ newspaper.
Neil Chandler was replaced at half time by Peter Kerr, and Garry Crane (cramp) was replaced by Ted Hopkins during the last quarter.
