Carlton would take on the undefeated Essendon and come away with the points in this home game. Essendon fans may point to their inaccuracy; Carlton fans would point to the scoreboard as the only thing that matters.
The Blues would still sit in 6th spot, with 4 wins from 6 matches. Carlton remained only 1 match off top spot, currently shared by Essendon, Collingwood and Geelong.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 112.7.
