Game ReviewFor Carlton, this was a very disappointing start to the first season of 18-a-side football. With only three points on the board after three quarters, the Blues risked recording a new lowest score. Fortunately, majors to George Cowell and Charlie Curtis in the last quarter gave the Blues some respectability.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 6th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 24.7.
