Game Review

Stephen Kernahan produced another wonderful display up forward, with 17 kicks, 10 marks and four goals, as the Blues beat top five-placed Melbourne in one of the club's best displays of the season. Kernahan got solid support in attack from Jon Dorotich who also booted four goals.

Carlton's rugged, solidly built defender Steve Da Rui started his own wrecking machine against the opposition captains this round. Starting with Melbourne skipper, Greg Healy, Da Rui would crunch and stretcher over the next three weeks the opposing team's captain. Whether it was by accident or design, only Da Rui could tell. But to be hit by him, you stayed hit, all these "hits" were legitimate hip and shoulders.
