Game Review

Prior to the start of this game, the players of both sides lined up and gave three cheers to celebrate Carlton's first match at Footscray since 1896 - the season before the Blues joined the VFL. Carlton maintained their unbeaten record against the Tri-Colours with a solid 22-point win, in a game played on the Monday of the King's Birthday holiday weekend.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 5th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 115.8.
