Game Review

Carlton demolished Geelong in this home game.
A very poor crowd attended. The Geelong Advertiser said it should have been around 10,000, but blames Geelong's poor recent performances.

This was Carlton's 400th League game. For a summary of Carlton's fourth 100 League games, click here.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 176.1.
