Game Review

A third successive win pushed the Blues record to 6-5 and renewed hope of premiership glory.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 115.8.


"During the interval of the Carlton-Fitzroy match the Carlton club entertained old players.
Men who had donned the blue and white nearly sixty years ago were in attendance, and as far as could be gathered the two oldest were Agar Fitzgerald 1879 and Tom Norsworthy* 1883.
A large number of more recent former players were in the room and the pleasant interlude was enjoyed by everybody present."
