Game Review

Poor conversion in front of goal cost South Melbourne a chance to "avenge" last years Grand Final loss to the Blues.

Scores were level until Herb Turner, from a free kick straight in front, put it through for a behind as the bell rang.

After the game Jack Howell was taken to hospital for tetanus injections due to some nasty stop marks on his leg.
