Game Review

Carlton's season of discontent continued with a smashing at the hands of the Hawks.

The powers that be at Carlton were already eyeing off recruits over summer, and it is interesting to note that 3 of the players Carlton gave up for Greg Williams would have a role to play in this game - Peter Sartori and Simon Minton-Connell kicking most of our goals, and Ashley Matthews playing his last game for the Blues.

The only positive one could take from the game was the memory of a Mil Hanna bomb. Early in the second quarter Mil launched a torpedo on the run from well inside the centre square that went through the goals almost post high at the scoreboard end.


B: 23 Paul Meldrum 28 David Kernahan 35 Peter Dean

C: 20 Fraser Brown 10 Michael James 37 Adrian Bassett

Ruck: 44 Justin Madden 21 Craig Bradley (acting capt.) 19 Andrew Phillips
Interchange: 14 Michael Sexton 29 Simon Minton-Connell

Last Game (Carlton): Ashley Matthews played his 9th and final game for the Blues before transferring to Fitzroy.
