The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, 1939
This team had a successful season, coming second in the Championship Competition. The Club is fortunate in that among the members of this team there is much promising material for future senior sides. Two members gained Third grade representative honours, namely R. Te Punga and A. McLeod. During the season two members of the team, Cooney and Masters, assisted the seniors each on one occasion, whilst Cooney and Smart were members of the side, which played Canterbury University College at Christchurch. Other members of the team who showed considerable promise were Innes, Kilpatrlck and Taylor in the forwards, and M. Te Punga and Moore in the backs. The most improved player in the team was J. Kilpatrick who showed great improvement with every game and at the end of the season was an indispensable member. He has been awarded the Good Memorial Medal for the most improved player in the forwards of this team.
