In the backs Rae was again very good and he has performed very consistently this season. A very game half, he is one of the best the Club has ever had. Parker was good at first five-eighths and scored a fine try. The other backs all tackled well and Larkin made several nice dashes. The backs do not function smoothly, however, and the lack of a back of Wild's calibre has been one of the team's disabilities.
With the side In Senior A it is however to be expected that more recruits will Join the Club in the future and with the sound forward division that the Club possesses there will be every opportunity for promising backs to show their ability in the future. The Junior A fifteen is promising as is the Third A team and from these teams there is every likelihood of gaining the brilliant backs that the Club needs to-day.—J.A.C.
