Game Review

The Roys were first out on the ground and had had their team photo taken before the 3pm. start time. Carlton then made an appearance and then had their photo taken. (99 years and 5 months later this team photo has been found!).

A strong northerly wind was blowing slightly favouring the Sydney Road/Royal Parade end of the ground. Fitzroy kicked with the advantage of the wind.
To be completed See sporting edition in Trove.

In a game where they had more scoring shots, the Blues went down to the Maroons by 9 points.

Next Friday's Herald reports that Rupe Hiskins could remember playing the second half.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 6th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 94.9.

The ill fated Lyle Downs (front row, far left) looks to be wearing either a cut off long sleeve jumper or a navy blue T shirt under his sleeveless guernsey.
Lyle's short life would be over in less than two months.
