Game Review

Essendon's new goal kicking sensation John Coleman has his first real test today against the competition's No.1 full back Ollie Grieve. Coleman manage only one goal in the first half from a free kick when Carlton debutant Geoff Brokenshire foolishly knocked him over. Greive had the better of Coleman who ended the day with just 2.3
