Game Review

A wayward Carlton still crushed St Kilda with a big 45 point win at Princes Park. One can only guess the weather conditions of the day - or hope that it was a valid excuse - with 39 behinds scored for the day.

The Saints scored 10 behinds before registering their first goal in the second quarter.

Best; J. Nicholls (BOG), Brereton, Webster, Zeunert, Comben, D. Nicholls, Silvagni.
