Game Review

Carlton dropped their fourth game in a row, and after earlier in the season seeming huge contenders for Premiership honours appeared now, at 5-5, to be now only possibilities to claim a finals berth.

One positive from the match was the return to form of Alex Jesaulenko who had had a few quiet weeks after a magnificent start to the season.
