Game Review

Ron Stone had replaced Ian Robertson (strained knee ligaments) in the selected side.
Terry Board was replaced 10 minutes into the first quarter.
Carlton stuck with the ladder-leading Saints for three quarters of this clash at Moorabbin, but were overwhelmed in the last term and lost by 9 goals. Winless after the first two rounds, the Blues sat in eighth place, ahead of three other teams on percentage; Footscray, Fitzroy and Melbourne.
