Game Review

Carlton opened a 4 goal advantage in the first term and the margin remained in the 3-5 goal region for the entire match.

Alex Jesaulenko produced his fourth BOG in four rounds, contributing several "assists" as well as notching 5 majors himself.

In his previous 3 seasons Jezza had shown himself to be a star (including a 3rd placing in the Brownlow in his debut season) but he was now proving himself to be one of the very best players ever to wear the old dark navy blue.
