Reply to Outside Left

I Should be pleased it you would publish the following :

I would suggest that in future your columnist "Outside Left" check his facts before he makes insinuations about individuals and/ or organisations. A New Zealand Rugby League team has never visited South Africa, and since the code it not played there it is extremely unlikely that one will ever do so. I assume that what "Outside Left" is referring to is a South African Rugby League team which visited New Zealand in 1963 during Mr. T. E. Skinner's term of office as a member of the New Zealand Rugby League Council. This team was made up very largely of South Africans playing the code professionally in Great Britain and Australia, amongst whom are a number of coloured South Africans.

Hon. Secretary.

We hope to make this a regular feature.
