Reserves Preliminary Final

September 25
Carlton played Collingwood on the M.C.G. as a curtain raiser to the VFL Grand Final.
The Reserves Grand Final (Geelong - Collingwood) was played on the following Thursday (Show Day) on the M.C.G.
"Although the seniors in the League football grand final showed how the game should be played, the seconds final, which was the "curtain raiser" at the Melbourne Cricket-ground, provided one of the worst exhibitions ever seen on the ground.
All through the game there were nasty incidents, but the worst trouble occurred early in the third quarter, when there was one all-in fight, players of both sides joining in and hurling blows recklessly at each other.
At the end of the match surprise was expressed when it was found that only three men had been reported. Some of the incidents occurred in the open, yet the offenders were not penalised, and play was allowed to go on."
"Playing a steadier game Collingwood added six goals to two in the last quarter to win 19.12 to Carlton's 12.4 Adopting it's senior side's short passing and position play, but lacking a little of it's accuracy, Collingwood made many spectacular moves. It led by six goals to two at one stage, but Carlton added three goals in a few minutes, and it was only six points down at half-time. Collingwood, after the third quarter melee, played the stronger and steadier game." (Argus Sept. 27)

"Disgraceful Matter" said Chairman

In what was described as "a disgraceful match" Field Umpire Cheers reported Collingwood's captain W. Fitzgerald, who was suspended for 4 weeks, for charging Carlton's R. Chitty.
Boundary Umpire Smith & Goal Umpire Gibbons reported K. Dunn (Carlton) who received 4 weeks for striking J. Crowe (Collingwood), and A. Ryan (Collingwood) 10 weeks for striking K. Dunn (Carlton).
All incidents happened during the third quarter.
"The chairman of the tribunal Mr. D. C. Gardiner said: - I was at this match and I do not remember anything so disgraceful. I expected to have about 14 players here to-night, and I was amazed when I found out there were only to be three. This sort of thing has got to be put down. It is bringing our good game into disgrace. In one instance I saw I saw two players fighting. Neither was reported. I cannot understand that. It was the most disgraceful exhibition I have ever seen a second 18 put up." (Argus Sept. 29 p30)
