The Season's Review

The Season's Review

Again, the individual performances present a very mixed bag.

Greig has been a saviour to the team as full-back. His kicking and handling has been outstanding but the team has had many anxious moments when he has had to do any tackling. The three-quarter line has shown plenty of dash and a point in favour of any wings has been to "give it a go" whenever possible. Ekdahl, Donovan and Mahood have all per formed well; especially the latter who started the season as a forward. His tackling has been a feature of his play and this coupled with his general "energy" has made him a particularly acceptable wing.

The inside backs have had a troubled season due to the many changes to which they have been subjected. Hay has scarcely been comfortable but has shown sound defence; McVcagh through injuries has not been able to settle down. Pepps has directed back play with considerable skill and should be considered as a very promising back.

At half-back Carey has played a plucky season but has retarded back play on account of his slowness. Certainly he has had rough treatment from the opposing forwards but despite the lack of protection from his own side row much has been caused from his own slowness.
