.303 Rifles

The six-man team is: G. Adlam, J. R. McKinley, G. R. Wakefield, J. R. Whiteman, J. K. Williams, K. D. Win. Reserve, K. Shepherd.

Victoria's marksmen are attempting to record their third consecutive win in the Haslin Shield competition, symbol of university shooting supremacy.

The tournament team this year is an outstanding one with the team's experience being probably its greatest asset.

The team includes three members of Victoria's 1967-1968 teams and also three members have qualified for the Queen's Fifty in the national championships.

Newcomers John Whiteman and Kevin Win have been tested at association level and are shooting to NZU standard.

In addition. Jim McKinley, a 1968 NZU Blue, and also the top shooter that year, is expected to take the honours again this year.

The strongest opposition should come from Canterbury, who have the advantage of competing on their home range at West Melton, while Otago and Massey are also fielding strong teams.

It is expected that Olympic bronze medallist Ian Ballinger will select the NZU team to shoot against a representative Canterbury side on Easter Monday.
