N.Z. Centennial Exhibition Sports
N.Z. Centennial Exhibition Sports.
Preliminary plans have already been made for the staging of monster sports attractions in conjunction with the N.Z. Centennial Exhibition. Committees have been formed to arrange dates so that there will not be any clashing of fixtures and valuable spade work has been put in to ensure the success of the sporting side of the celebrations.
Visiting athletes and swimmers are certain to be featured, and there is a possibility that a combined Oxford-Cambridge Rugby team will also be visiting New Zealand. The Californian Rugby Football Board has contacted the New Zealand Rugby Union and has suggested that a team from California visit New Zealand in 1940. Unfortunately, the standard of Rugby is not high in California and such a visit might not be a success.
