Game Review

The Blues pummelled the Dogs by 89 points at home, with future Premiership player Shane Robertson on debut.

Carlton's Jimmy Buckley picked up three votes for his outstanding game against Footscray. Back from injury, Buckley epitomised the determination of the Blues and was a shining light in Carlton's win over Footscray. - Inside Football Player of the Year.
