Weir House. — South Beats North

Weir House.

South Beats North.

On Saturday, the 16th August, the annual Rugby match between North Island and South Island residents of Weir House for the Kelburn Keg was played at Kelburn Keg was played at Kelburn Park, resulting in a win for South, Since the inauguration of the game three years back North had always proved the victors, but this year the run of luck was broken, and South ran out winners by 13 to 3.

Conditions were not ideal, as rain fell at intervals during the match. Nevertheless, the superior South Island backs handled particularly well in spite of the wet ball, and it was due entirely to their enterprising game that the game was won. North were superior in the forwards, but their backs did not penetrate or have the finish to their movements to take advantage of such superiority. Parker scored the only try for North, while Turnbull kicked a few goals for South, and if you want to know who got their tries, please see Weir House Magazine, 1936 number.
