On this day, the 26th September in 1970, Carlton staged one of the greatest comebacks in AFL/VFL Grand Final history.

Carlton vs. Collingwood
Grand Final
Saturday 26th September 1970

It was the day that is often referred to as one of the proudest moments in the history of the Carlton Football Club. 

It was the day that saw a record-breaking 121,696 spectators stream into the MCG, to watch the game's greatest rivals go head-to-head. 

It was the day where Alex Jesaulenko plunged into the air, imbedding one knee into Collingwood's Graham Jenkin's shoulder, snatching the ball out of the sky.

It was the day that rightly or wrongly, is said to have changed the game forever.
