Game Review

The Swans would score a comprehensive victory over the Blues by 59 points. They raced away to a big early lead and the Blues had no answers. Nothing went right for Carlton, losing Spalding, Hogg, Sexton and Pearce to injuries, leaving them with no bench.

Stephen Silvagni was about Carlton's only winner, restricting Lockett to just one goal. Stephen Kernahan kicked 3 goals, while Justin Murphy, Adam White and Greg Williams (returning from suspension) kicked 2. Murphy had 9 shots at goal but kicked 7 behinds. Craig Bradley had 27 possessions, while Fraser Brown had 25.
