Game Review

Carlton took on the ladder leaders in Essendon, but failed to take the game.

In the second quarter Essendon was awarded a goal from a snap from Bomber Jack Jones from near the behind post.
The ball struck both goal posts and despite protests from the Carlton players, the goal stood!
Essendon won the game by 5 points.

O. Grieve (family bereavement) was replaced in selected team by V. English

Carlton were 5th after 8 rounds with a percentage of 100.4.

"Carlton is the only League team which does not name its 19th and 20th men with the original team selection, but from a list of emergencies just before a game.
