Carlton win by 47 points
Melbourne's second consecutive visit to Princes Park came after a 'home' game win against the Saints the week before, but on the day when the Blues unveiled the premiership flag at their home ground they were too good for the disappointing Dees.
Best were Turley, Hopgood and Nettelbeck.
During the third quarter the emergency umpire reported "persons from the bench" for using abusive language towards a field umpire.
