  1. Richard Davis says

    The Carlton game was one of danger for Sydney who had let a win slip against Freo and a Carlton desperate to answer their critics. Sydney were down on personnel with Hickey out and not much size to combat the giant Blues forwards. At quarter time Sydney looked as though they were taking control, ,but a bad second quarter (2 50 metres penalties) gave Carlton the lead. An even 3rd quarter followed and the game was set up for a grandstand finish. However it was Sydney who tackled harder and attacked the ball with desire. Great games were played by Heeney, Harry Cunningham (his best ever). Kennedy, Parker, Lloyd as usual, but a strong tackle count of 82 held them in good stead. They will need to win the so-called easy games which are ahead of them. Carlton have injuries but appear to rely too heavily on Cripps, Walsh and McKay. a team effort required.
