Game Review

Carlton moved back into third spot on the ladder with a convincing 43 point victory over Geelong at Princes Park. After an action-packed first quarter in which 13 goals were kicked, the Cats lead narrowly, but from that point on the Carlton big guns seized control. Justin Madden, Stephen Silvagni, Craig Bradley, Wayne Blackwell, Adrian Gleeson, David Rhys-Jones, Justin Madden and Jon Dorotich (five goals) are simply too good for their Geelong counterparts. It's the Cats sixth successive defeat - their worst losing sequence since 1975. - Tony Greenberg Inside Football.

Steal of the Round
Carlton's Stephen Silvagni is caught out of position as Geelong's Michael Turner taps a short pass across to teammate Bruce Lindner. But somehow Silvagni, who is travelling in the same direction as the ball manages to intercept and clear for the Blues as a bewildered Lindner looks on....... - Inside Football.
