A typical Carlton third quarter blitz where the Blues kick nine goals to one to knock over any Saints resistance.
The brilliant Carlton small man brigade are playing well at the business end of the season and, rover Ken Sheldon is one of the real prime movers for the Blues. Sheldon cut holes through the Saints line-up and was easily the best player of the ground with his damaging play. - Inside Football Player of the Year.
