Game Review

Oh, how things can change from the heights of the Essendon and Hawthorn games. It was not so much the loss, but the deplorable standard offootball on offer. Even Melbourne played terribly. Only Big Carl Ditterich's presence livened things up.

Melbourne played a superior brand of football to completely outclass what was thought to be the best Carlton side for the season and record their first win over the Blues in the last nine games - 1971. It was only Melbourne's fifth win at VFL Park in 19 games, while the Blues suffered defeat for the fifth time in their last seven games at the ground. - Football Record.
