Game Review

The Kangaroos jumped Carlton early, and had 2.3 on the board before their visitors threatened to score. Thereafter normal transmission was resumed however. The Blues wrested control by quarter time, and cruised to a comfortable 25-point victory.

With one home and away game remaining and September in sight, Carlton held an unassailable position on top of the table.
