Which of the coaches did the worst injury?
It was an ugly game for the Blues, who lost to the Dragons and are struggling to find their feet.
It was an embarrassing result for Carlton, who had their best player missing after he fell awkwardly and hurt his ankle in the third quarter.
Both teams struggled against a strong defence and were left on the back foot.
The Blues were out-played by the Dragons, with Josh Bruce and Tom Lynch the Blues best players.
Both sides had to deal with injuries to key players, with the Blues having to use just two players in the last quarter.
Carlton had its best player injured when Kurt Tippett went down with a knee injury in the second quarter.
Luke Brown was replaced by Ben McEvoy, who picked up a hip injury late in the game.
The Dragons had an even worse day, with Aaron Black missing a key part of the game with an ankle injury.
It had been a quiet day for the Dragons in the first half.
The Dragons were held to just eight points, with two wins and two losses in their last 10 games.
There was no sign of the Blues at all.
Their first half was dominated by the Blues.
They kicked just one goal and failed to score in the opening 15 minutes.
They had no answer for the pressure the Blues put on them in the midfield, with James Graham missing a big chance early in the match.
In the second half, the Blues scored five tries, and the Dragons only conceded three.
The game looked to be winding down as the Dragons continued to attack the Blues’ defence, but Carlton was able to pull back into the game early in third quarter and force the Dragons into an early change.
Ben McEvore was unable to find his best gear, and it was too late to make a difference.
The third quarter was a different story.
The teams exchanged goals early in that period, but there was no way for either side to get a result.
After the game, coach Alan Richardson said he felt Carlton had been beaten.
“We have to put our hands up to the boys who got hurt today and said we will do better in the future.”
But that is about how it is, and we will get better.
“It is just a game and it is about what you do on the field, not how you look after your own.”
There was a lot of pressure on our guys, we got outplayed and it hurt us badly.
“I am not blaming them or the coaches, I think it was just about us being out-worked and it will take time for us to get back to where we need to be.”
If you are a team that is not playing well you will get outplayed in the end.
“It was a terrible start to the season for the Lions, who finished in third place.
The Lions are now five points behind the Dragons with eight games left.
The Tigers were the clear favourites, but it was a disappointing start to their season.
The Cats, who are now three points clear of the Dragons at the top of the ladder, will have to wait for a stronger result.
