Game Review

Carlton was on such a roll by this stage that even this sub-par performance against Collingwood was more than enough to win easily. The double chance looked ours for the taking.

Wayne Harmes followed up last week's top game with another strong display for the Blues. Harmes gave the Blues plenty of drive from the backline, and when later switched onto the ball sent the ball forward with damaging effect. - Inside Football Player of the Year.
