Extrav on Tour

Extrav on Tour

Alter an outstandingly successful Wellington season. Extrav. ("Up the Poll") played twice in Hastings over Queen's Birthday weekend, for the benefit of local Boy Scout's and Girl Guides funds.

After Monday night's performances the heads of the two organisations were each handed an £80 cheque by V.U.C.S.A. President, John Marchant.

Large audiences, although not as demonstrative as their Wellington counterparts, indicated approval.

Highlights of the tour included a Rugby match between an Extrav. team and the Havelock North Senior XV on Monday morning To everyone's amazement. Extrav. scored a converted try in the first minute—but the wear and tear of the tour became increasingly evident as the game progressed.

To counter the opposition's employment of a horse in the full back area. Extrav. reinforcements—about 20, both sexes—invaded the field to end an excellent game in a manner which gave an ironical twist to a match billed as "Rugby as the Students Play It."

Mention must be made of the excellent organisation and wonder full hospitality of our hosts.
