Game Review

Carlton's Barry Armstrong collected a bundle of kicks, and set up many attacking moves for the Blues. Armstrong kicked four goals as he controlled the midfield in his ruck-roving role. He combined well with fellow on-baller and speedster Vin Catoggio who was able to use his blistering speed to great affect for the Blues, as well as kicking a game high five goals. - Inside Football Player of the Year.
