Game Review

"Carlton made a last minute change omitting Doyle. The selectors decided to play Skehan in his place, but Skehan was absent, and McSwain went in." (Sporting Globe May 24)

The Herald said it was a record score to half time.
The Blues would win comfortably, with young 19 year old Les Allen scoring 8 goals from the forward pocket - in just his second game.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 1st spot on the ladder with a percentage of 157.1.
