Game Review

Umpire Kain is given bucketing
Umpire Kain was pelted by a shower of fruit and stones as he tried to leave the ground after Carlton's loss to Melbourne. Kain was attacked for failing to award Carlton's Joe Kelly a free after a collision. At the end of the game it took three attempts before Kain was able to reach the dressing room. On route, he was kicked and jostled and a policeman was punched in a brawl. One man was arrested and charged with throwing a missile. Several weeks ago, after a game, a supporter threw a bucket of water over the hapless Kain. - 100 Years of Australian Rules Football.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 115.3.
