|Result:||Loss by 28 points|
Wally Ocock returned to the Carlton side and played under the pseudonym of Alfred Wallace, (which was a combination of one of his Christian names, and his mother's maiden surname) because he was unable to get a doctor’s clearance to play. He scored Carlton’s only two goals.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 44.8.
