Game Review

On a rare warm and calm day at the Western Oval, John Nicholls led his team to another big win over the Bulldogs, who were kept scoreless in the last quarter and recorded their lowest-ever score against the Blues.

With one game left in the season - a tough assignment against Geelong - Carlton was headed for a sixth-placed finish.
