Game Review

show_image.php?id=28110One can imagine that John Elliott's comments about the Bulldogs 'tragic history' made in the lead up to this match gave the Doggies the ammo they needed to outplay the Blues at Colonial Stadium.

It was a scrappy affair that was highlighted by the Blues 40 clangers to the 11 made by the Dogs. Allan, McKay, Hamill, and Camporeale were in the Blues best.

This was Carlton's first-ever game at Docklands Stadium.
