This is to be regarded as one of the sporting spheres where Victoria should perform well and can be given an extremely good chance of coming out on top again.
The men's team in particular has an extremely well performed membership. From veterans. Robert Hayman, Richard Clarke, through to J. Loh and G. Strati the potential is here for good results.
The women's team of A. Apathy, V. McLean, S. Norris, and J. Stacey can be expected to perform equally as well.
Victoria's men's team has had a fairly successful season in Wellington this year, winning the 'C' grade championships.
Tournament chances look to be quite promising this year.
Stewart Perry, a NZU representative, and Chris Ricket who were in the team which gained second place last year are both available again.
In addition the men's team has been strengthened by the inclusion of fresher Paul Devoy who achieved national rankings while a Junior.
The women's team comprises Juliet Broad, Lynda Oliver and Virginia Patrick.
Strongest opposition is expected to come from Auckland with Otago also expected to be a force [unclear: t] he reckoned with.
Traditionally Victoria has finished among the top two teams in past tournaments and this has been due in no small degree to the solid core of experience players who have been available.
This year the situation is very different with a team of relatively inexperienced players.
So unless something untoward happens one cannot see the Soccer team performing as well as in past years.
Victoria's tentative team is: J. Allen, N. Andreassen, I. Ball, P. Borrell, D. Bradshaw, J. Connell, N. Laird, A. Mudford, B Nicol, M. Peters, J. Reeve, D, Scobie, R. Shuker, G. Walls.
On the basis of Victoria's success in the local competition this season, it could be expected that the team would do well at Tournament.
But several key players are unable to make the trip south to Dunedin.
This will considerably weaken the team and lessen its chances of success.
Also, there will not be any easy games either as the other competing university sides have, all had considerable success in local competition.
Victoria's tentative team is: Ron Burberry, John Fugler, Jeff Camlin, John Haynes, Graeme McBride, Steve Radich, George Rasmussen, F. Agnew, B. Ashwell, A. Brodie, J. Dixon, C. Hall, R. McRae, D. Mollet, E. Nathan, D. Penninglon, N. Shields.
