  1. I think there's a mistake here - would there have been two matches played by Melbourne Rovers and Carlton on June 8? (I'm thinking the source says the 6-0 game was in late June?)

    Also, did the Melburne Rovers vs South Melbourne game scheduled for July 13 go ahead?

  2. Thanks Paul. I'll have a look. You're probably right.
