Game Review

In a dour battle of defences at Princes Park, Carlton held sway throughout for another very satisfying win over the Pies - and as a bonus, assumed outright ladder leadership when Melbourne defeated Footscray at the Western Oval.
The only concern for the Blues was our poor percentage of 116.12 - well short of second and third-placed Essendon and Melbourne.
