Biggest loss against Carlton

The platform for the Blues massive win was set with them kicking goals in the opening minute of every quarter for the day, and they did it easily as they would most things throughout the match. It beat their previous biggest ever win against the Demons by almost five goals.

John Northey had earlier claimed that his side was one who needed "everything to start in its favour" and he couldn't have been any more disappointed with the way the quarters were starting. His side had some excuses, David Williams had pulled his thigh muscle early in the game then Robert Flower injured his right ankle early in the second - leaving the side with no interchange players.

Northey's young side was comprehensively run off their feet by the faster, more experienced and skillful Blues and lost the plot almost from the first bounce. Carlton were brilliant but they didn't have much in the way of competition as they racked up a huge win. They were 70 points in front at half time and only marginally slackened in the second half. The Blues did it so easily that they had time for trick goals, Justin Madden was taken close to goal but still on a tight angle after a 15 metre penalty, but as the man on the mark wasn't allowed to move closer he casually walked to the line and dribbled the ball through from point blank range.

Best were Hughes, Newport and Kol
