Jack Smith played his last game for Varsity on Saturday before his departure to the United States where he intends to further his engineering studies. He has been a tower of strength to the Varsity team. His play has earned him representative honours and they have never more justly been awarded. This year less has been seen of him in the loose and this may be thought by many to be an improvement in his play. The excellent play of the Varsity forwards this year is duo in no small measure to this player's performances. His line-out play has enabled Victoria by a more adequate supply of the ball a greater number of opportunities for its backs.
We wish him the best of luck in his studies and hope that he will not be lost forever to Rugby.
